Song of the Day 5/2/09

OK, trying this in firefox, hold on, this could be a disaster…Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Saturday’s song is #452:

The Sex Pistols – No Feelings – This one you know. Don’t be fooled into thinking it’s a justification for rightwing selfishness – it’s just a raised middle finger at conformity. “I kick you in the brains when you get down to kneel and pray, you pray to your god!!!” This link is to the version from their last-ever show with Sid Vicious, Winterland, 1977. In case you’re unfamiliar, Bananarama’s deadpan 1981 cover – from when they were still ostensibly punk girls – is hilarious.
