The Sex Pistols were an English punk rock band that formed in London in 1975. Although their initial career lasted just two and a half years, they are regarded as one of the most groundbreaking acts in the history of popular music. They were responsible for initiating the punk movement in the United Kingdom and inspiring many later punk and alternative rock musicians. Their fashion and hairstyles have been credited as a significant influence on punk image, and they are often associated with anarchism within music.

The Sex Pistols originally comprised vocalist John Lydon (known at the time by his stage name "Johnny Rotten"), guitarist Steve Jones, drummer Paul Cook and bassist Glen Matlock. Matlock was replaced by Sid Vicious in early 1977. Under the management of Malcolm McLaren, the band attracted controversies that both captivated and appalled Britain. Through an obscenity-laced television interview in December 1976 and their May 1977 single "God Save the Queen", attacking Britons' social conformity and deference to the Crown, they precipitated the punk rock movement. It was banned not only by the BBC but also by nearly every independent radio station, making it the "most heavily censored record in British history".

The band's only album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols (1977)—a UK number one album—is a staple record of punk rock. In January 1978, at the end of their over-hyped and turbulent tour of the United States, Rotten announced the band's break-up. Over the next few months, the three remaining band members recorded songs for McLaren's film version of the Sex Pistols' story, The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle. Vicious died of a heroin overdose in February 1979, following his arrest for the alleged murder of his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen. Rotten, Jones, Cook and Matlock reunited for a highly successful concert tour in 1996. Further one-off performances and short tours followed over the next decade.

The Sex Pistols have been recognised as an influence on various genres, including grunge, indie, thrash metal and hip hop.In 2004, Rolling Stone placed them No. 58 on its list of the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time". On 24 February 2006, the Sex Pistols—the four original members plus Vicious—were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but they refused to attend the ceremony, calling the museum "a piss stain".

There was a huge swell of public approval when the original four Sex Pistols reunited in 1996 for the six-month Filthy Lucre Tour. The tour included dates in Europe, North and South America, Australia and Japan and tickets sold out immediately.

The Sex Pistols decided against producing new material for the tour and stuck to the 1976 repertoire which had made them famous. The band were disdainful of the media attention and were indifferent to any negative comments. This led to some fans jokingly referring to the tour as 'the same old bollocks tour' but, as always, the music was a huge success. The proof of just how great these now legendary gigs actually were can be found in these powerful concert radio broadcasts from Santiago, Paris & Tokyo.

This deluxe six album edition is presented on 10-inch Dayglo coloured vinyl, with the individual albums housed in gatefold sleeves, all presented in a heavy-weight card slip case.
