Punk is Dead – You Can Now Get Sex Pistols Credit Cards
It's a little late to complain when rock bands "sell out". These days you can't survive in the music industry unless you sell out. It's just a little bit sadder when a band like the Sex Pistols does it.
Richard Branson's British bank Virgin Money is issuing three new Sex Pistols credit cards. Two have art from their 1977 album "Never Mind the Bollocks" and the third has a design inspired by the single "Anarchy in the U.K."
The Pistols signed to Branson's Virgin Records in 1977, and he says, "Even after nearly 40 years, the Sex Pistols' power to provoke is undimmed." Although these days, what they're most likely to provoke is a call from a collection agency. The cards will have an interest rate of 18.9%.
