* AwardSnub: Inverted. The band snubbed The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, calling it a "piss stain."

** Let's face it folks: The Sex Pistols are either one of the greatest bands to form and influence [[Music/JoyDivision certain]] [[Music/TheSmiths bands]] to become big ''or'' are just a very painful band to listen to, complete with their assumed [[TheGadfly Gadfly]] personalities. Especially Rotten.

* VindicatedByHistory: Inverted in the case of Sid. During the eighties he was frequently touted as a musical genius whereas now he's recognized for the DreadfulMusician he really was. Played somewhat straight with the rest of the band, but especially with Steve Jones who is finally being recognized as a surprisingly talented guitarist. Those used to the strict ThreeChordsAndTheTruth version of PunkRock often come away thinking the Sex Pistols sound more like a HardRock band after hearing Steve play.
* TheWoobie: Say what you will about the guy, but what is known of Sid Viciousí life, both before and after the Sex Pistols, is actually pretty heartbreaking.
