On this day in 1976 The Sex Pistols appeared on the UK’s ‘Today’ show and said some very naughty words…watch the video below


It was Dec the 1st 1976 and Queen were originally supposed to appear on ITV’s live early evening ‘Today’ show but Freddie Mercury had to go to the dentists…so instead they booked the Sex Pistols.

From the start you can see that interviewer Bill Grundy didn’t think much of them and it all quickly went downhill, as Grundy asks a then unknown Siouxsie Sioux (later of Siouxsie And The Banshees) Are you worried, or are you just enjoying yourself? Sioux replies “Enjoying myself.”, then she says “I always wanted to meet you.” which he replies “We’ll meet afterwards, shall we?” then Steve Jones starts in with:

Jones: You dirty sod. You dirty old man!

Grundy: Well keep going, chief, keep going. Go on, you’ve got another five seconds. Say something outrageous.

Jones: You dirty bastard!

Grundy: Go on, again.

Jones: You dirty fucker! [Laughter from the group]

Grundy: What a clever boy!

Jones: What a fucking rotter.
