Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols is the only studio album by punk pioneers the Sex Pistols, released on 28 October 1977 by Virgin Records in the UK (and on 11 November 1977 by Warner Bros. in the US). The album is frequently listed as the most influential punk album, and one of the most important and best albums of all time.

The band’s internal relationships were always volatile, and the lineup saw changes during the recording of the album. Original bass guitarist Glen Matlock left the band early in the recording process, and while he is credited as a co-writer on all but two of the tracks, he only performed bass on Anarchy in the U.K.. Recording sessions continued with a new bass player, Sid Vicious, who is credited on two of the songs the band wrote after he joined. While Vicious’s bass playing appeared on two tracks, his lack of skill on the instrument meant that many of the tracks were recorded with guitarist Steve Jones playing bass instead. Drummer Paul Cook and singer Johnny Rotten appear on every track. The various recording sessions were led alternately by Chris Thomas or Bill Price, and sometimes both together, but as the songs on the final albums often combined mixes from different sessions, or were poorly documented who was present in the recording booth at the time, each song is jointly credited to both producers.

In 1987, Rolling Stone magazine named the album the second best of the previous twenty years, behind only the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The same magazine ranked it No. 73 on their list of 500 greatest albums of all time in 2020. In 2006, it was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 greatest albums ever.
