It was the protest song that spoke to a generation.
The Sex Pistols' 'God Save the Queen' hit the number 2 spit in Britain during the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, despite the BBC's refusal to play it.
Now, 35 years on, the UK's alternative national anthem is being reissued to coincide with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The Pistols reformed ten years ago at the time of the Queen's fiftieth anniversary.
At the time, frontman John Lydon, formerly known as Johnny Rotten, wasn't shy of giving his views on the Royal Family.
SOUNDBITE: John Lydon, singer, saying (English):
"This is our country, this is our flag, they are our monarchy, they don't work too well at the moment but lets make the f**kers do a good job, get rid of a few of the useless ones and keep the goodies."
The song is unlikely to enjoy the chart success it did in the seventies and Rotten has distanced himself from an online campaign to get it to number one.
But the classic album from which the single is taken will also be re-released in the UK in September.
