It is claimed that “God Save The Queen” out-sold the UK Number 1 record of the week (The First Cut Is The Deepest by Rod Stewart). At that time it was unimaginable that this track could have been allowed to reach Number 1. In the chart rundown on that week’s “Top of The Pops” (the weekly TV programme on the BBC that covered the charts) it was mentioned in chart rundown as a “a record by a group chosing to call themselves the Sex Pistols”.
The God Save The Queen Songfacts reports that in 2011 Record Collector magazine compiled its Top 50 most collectable records, and top of the list came the A&M release of this song - if you happen to have a copy the good news is it worth $12,000 (£8,000).
