In 1977 The Sex Pistols released their single God Save The Queen in the UK which was quickly banned by Radio, TV, highstreet shops and the pressing plant workers refused to handle the record! Despite this it sold 200,000 copies in one week! Which peaked at No.2 on the UK charts topped only by Rod Stewart’s I Don’t Want To Talk About It. Rumours persistently tell that the British Phonographic Industry conspired to keep it off the No.1 spot and it has never been confirmed or denied that it was actually the biggest selling single in the UK at that time!

Born on this day

Born on this day in 1966 was Sean Kinney for the band Alice In Chains who got the 1993 UK No.19 single with Would?! And thats what we’re going to show you.

Number one

Christina Aguilera with her friends Lil' Kim, Mya and Pink started a five week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with Lady Marmalade. Which is a cover from the original by LaBelle in 1975, this version was from the Baz Luhrmann film Moulin Rouge.
