The Date: January 6
The Movie: The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle (1980)
What Is It?: The Sex Pistols make a shambling exit by dressing up in dodgy private dick drag, metamorphosing into Looney Tunes, dragging former label EMI over the coals one last time, and taking their metaphorical assaults on their audiences to literal extremes.
Why Today?: On this day in 1977, EMI drops The Sex Pistols.
