This is the reimagined story behind The Sex Pistols' infamous appearance on Bill Grundy's show in 1976, a year before their legendary debut album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols was released.

The foul-mouthed encounter catapulted The Sex Pistols into the public eye and signalled the arrival of mainstream punk, while simultaneously destroying Grundy's career - and all because of a last minute cancellation by Freddie Mercury.
