Song of the Day 6/11/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Thursday’s song is #412:

The Sex Pistols – No Lip

Another iconic band who occupied much more space on this list than they do now, before we cleaned house and replaced most of the obvious suspects with some less obvious ones: after all, you don’t need us to tell you how great the Pistols were, do you? But this is a less obvious treat, Steve Jones turning Dave Berry’s old 1964 British R&B song into fiery, fractured pseudo-funk. From the Great Rock N Roll Swindle soundtrack (and a million bootlegs); mp3s are everywhere. Here’s a youtube clip; this is the original.
