anarchy01_400"Anarchy in the U.K." is a song by the British punk rock band the Sex Pistols, released as the group's debut recording on 26 November 1976.

Originally issued in a plain black sleeve, the single was the only Sex Pistols recording released by EMI, and reached number 38 on the UK Singles Chart before EMI dropped the anarchy02group on January 6 1977, a month after the televised Bill Grundy incident. The song later appeared on the album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols. The song's lyrics espouse a nihilistic and violent concept of anarchy. The lyrics mention several political/paramilitary organizations prominent at the time, comparing them to the UK: the MPLA, the UDA, and the IRA.

In the documentary The Filth and the Fury, John Lydon described the composition of the song's opening lyrics, explaining that the best rhyme he could devise for the first line, "I am an Antichrist", was a mispronunciation of the second line, "I am an anarchist".

"Anarchy in the U.K." is number 53 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list. In 2007 the surviving members (not including Glen Matlock) re-recorded "Anarchy in the U.K." for the video game Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock because the masters could not be found.


Songwriters: Jones, Steve;Matlock, Glen;Lydon, John;Cook, Paul

Right! NOW! ha ha ha ha ha

I am an anti-christ
I am an anarchist
Don't know what I want but
I know how to get it
I wanna destroy the passer by cos I

I wanna BE anarchy!
No dogs body!

Anarchy for the U.K it's coming sometime and maybe
I give a wrong time stop a traffic line
your future dream is a shopping scheme

cos I, I wanna BE anarchy!
In the city

How many ways to get what you want
I use the best I use the rest
I use the enemy
I use anarchy cos I

I wanna BE anarchy!
THE ONLY WAY TO BE!

Is this the M.P.L.A
Or is this the U.D.A
Or is this the I.R.A
I thought it was the U.K or just
another country
another council tenancy

I wanna be anarchy
and I wanna be anarchy
Know what I mean
And I wanna be anarchist!
Get PISSED DESTROY !
