Song of the Day: 'Pretty Vacant' by the Sex Pistols


The Sex Pistols were so short-lived and scandal-ridden that I sometimes forget that they had some good songs, like today's pick. The band is synonymous with punk rock, so it's also easy to forget that New York bands -- like the Ramones and the Stooges -- were actually the forebearers of the genre, as evidenced by the B-side of "Pretty Vacant," a cover of the Stooges' "No Fun."
