Sex Pistols is apunk-rock band formed in 1975 in London(UK). They started the punk movement in that country, inspiring later more punk musicians. Their career only lasted 3 years but their ideas inspired many young people.
Originally, its musicians were: vocalist Johnny Rotten, guitarist Steve Jones, drummer Pau Cook and bassist Glen Matlock. Then Matlock was replaced by Sid Vicious in 1977 who died of a heroin overdose in February, 1979. The rest of the members continued with another group and they used to meet up sometimes.
Their concerts rapidly caused problems with the authorities and public appearances often ended up badly. Their single "God save the queen" went against the monarchy.
On 24 February 2006, the Sex Pistols were included into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but they refused to go to the ceremony, calling the museum "a piss stain".
