and Malcolm Mc Laren and Vivienne Westwood's Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die.
The Mc Laren–Westwood shop had opened in 1971 as Let It Rock, with a 1950s revival Teddy Boy theme.
In January 1978, at the end of a turbulent tour of the United States, Rotten left the Sex Pistols and announced its break-up.
Over the next several months, the three other band members recorded songs for Mc Laren'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.
In 1996, Rotten, Jones, Cook and Matlock reunited for the Filthy Lucre Tour; since 2002, they have staged further reunion shows and tours.
On 24 February 2006, the Sex Pistols—the four original, surviving members and Sid Vicious—were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but they refused to attend the ceremony, calling the museum "a piss stain".
The Sex Pistols evolved from the Strand, a London band formed in 1972 with working-class teenagers Steve Jones on vocals, Paul Cook on drums, and Wally Nightingale on guitar.
According to a later account by Jones, both he and Cook played instruments they had stolen.
They would go to music performances, and when the concert was over they would go up on stage and steal as much musical equipment as they could carry.
The Sex Pistols were an English punk rock band formed in London in 1975.
