Earlier this month, Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock played an updated version of ‘God Save The Queen’ to coincide with King Charles III’s coronation.
The show took place at London’s 100 Club to support the release of his new album ‘Consequences Coming‘. Announcing the gig, Matlock wrote: “I wonder what kind of warrant I’ll get?! Come on down to the 100 Club this Saturday and find out.”
Ahead of the show the bassist said that he would not be changing the lyrics to Sex Pistols’ iconic protest anthem ‘God Save The Queen’ because it was proving tricky to make the new lines rhyme. But it seems that Matlock found a way.
Introducing the reworked song, Matlock said it was for “one night only” before singing the opening line, “We’re gonna save the King/ It ain’t just old thing”.
Last year, Sex Pistols reissued ‘God Save The Queen’ to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
