Never Mind The Buzzcocks.

Never Mind The Buzzcocks

BBC Two panel show about music. 273 episodes (28 series), 1996 - 2015. Stars Mark Lamarr, Simon Amstell, Rhod Gilbert, Phill Jupitus and others.


The title for the series comes from The Sex Pistols album Never Mind the Bollocks and the punk rock band "Buzzcocks".

An episode of Never Mind the Buzzcocks sat in the BBC archives for more than two years before being broadcast. It was pulled from the schedules just before transmission because it featured Russell Brand as a guest team captain... the same week that the 'Sachsgate' scandal blew up in the newspapers causing Brand to quit the BBC. It was eventually shown in January 2011.


Lemmy of Motorhead and Samuel Preston of The Ordinary Boys have both walked off the show. Most recently, Radio DJ Huey Morgan smashed a mug and walked off before the credits.
