What is the story behind a little 7" slab of vinyl selling for 10 thousand dollars you say?
The seller states "What makes this particular copy SO special is that it is one of a limited number that were handed to long-serving A&M executives as a golden handshake when Polygram closed their London A&M office in 1998."
Record collectors are such geeks....
Here's the Sex Pistols original video
And Motorhead's great cover released in 2000
And finally a parody done by Second City TV - yes, that is Martin Short singing lead and John Candy as the drummer.......The band is named the Queenhaters and the song is "I Hate the Bloody Queen"
