How Do the Sex Pistols Sound Today?

posted by on October 25 at 17:06 PM

Folks in West Hollywood will get the answer to that question tonight during the kickoff concert for the Sex Pistols’ third reunion tour. Me, I could care less, but hours ago, I was forced to learn the answer hours earlier than most Californians. The answer? Slower and now including a 30,000 point guitar solo.

Turns out the band rerecorded “Anarchy In The UK” earlier this year for use in Guitar Hero III, as I found out a few hours ago when playing my review copy of the video game for a forthcoming review. And why did they go back to the studio for the first time in 30 years? The short answer? Master tapes have gone missing. The implied answer? You can probably gather it if you watch Johnny Lydon and Steve Jones explain their, uh, totally natural-sounding kudos about Guitar Hero in a bonus video tucked into the game, recorded on my terrible camera for your amusement:

I’d record the song as well, but seriously, you’re not missin’ much.
