Sex Pistols - The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle


On this date in 1979, Sex Pistols released their second album, The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle. Actually, it was the soundtrack to the movie of the same name and there were recordings by other artists on the album. The album produced the singles, "No One Is Innocent" (#6 U.K.), "Something Else" (#3 U.K.), "Silly Thing" (#6 U.K.), "C'mom Everybody" (#3 U.K.), "The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle" (#21 U.K.), "(I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone" (#21 U.K.), "My Way" (#6 U.K.) and "You Need Hands". This was, of course, the post-Johnny Rotten Sex Pistols though a lot of the footage in the movie and the recordings were from his time. "No One Is Innocent" was sung by Ronnie Biggs. "Something Else", "C'mom Everybody" and "My Way" were sung by Sid Vicious. "Silly Thing" was sung by Paul Cook. "The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle" was sung by Eddie Tenpole (also known as Eddie Tudor-Pole). "You Need Hands" was sung by Malcolm McLaren. "(I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone" wqas actually sung by Johnny Rotten. The album reached the #7 spot on the U.K. albums chart.
