Punk’s not dead, but it’s going to cost you a lot of money.
Discogs recently verified the sale of a rare 1977 Sex Pistols 7″ single that sold for $14,690 in November.
About 20,000 copies of the 7″ were pressed in 1977 by A&M Records with ‘God Save The Queen’ on Side A and ‘No Feeling’ on Side B. And as the legend goes, 6 days after signing them, Herb Alpert (yes, that Herp Albert) tore up their recording contract and the single was never released and most copies were destroyed.
If you’re interested, someone is selling a copy for about $25,000 on Discogs right now.
