Sex Pistols to re-record "Anarchy in the U.K." for Guitar Hero III

sexpistolsActivision has just announced that the Sex Pistols, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, has returned to the music studio to re-record their hit, Anarchy in the U.K., for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. The cut will be featured as a master track on the game.

Activision couldn’t locate the original track for the song, so instead of doing a remix or a cover, they decided to call the band for a new recording.

According to the official Activision press release:

"Original members John Lydon on vocals, guitarist Steve Jones and drummer Paul Cook re-teamed with producer Chris Thomas, utilizing the original analog sound desk (circa 1969) that was built for George Martin at Air Studios, London, England in order to maintain the classic sound."

The Sex Pistols’s only studio album, "Never Mind the Bollocks: Here’s the Sex Pistols," will be re-released on vinyl on October 29th. The original album was released 30 years ago.

Vocalist, John Lydon, stated, "Re-recording them [the songs]–what a stress you put on us but we rose to the occasion I think admirably! A bit of anarchy in a video game is alright by me."

Kai Huang, president of RedOctane said, "We are proud to have joined forces with such a legendary and influential band as The Sex Pistols for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. We are very excited to partner with them on their 30th Anniversary and expose them to an entirely new generation of fans through the game."

So if you’ve been hankering for some classic punk rock, get your hands on Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock on October 28th.

Get ready to do a little slam dancing!
