"Anarchy in the U.K." as written by Glen Matlock, Paul Thomas Cook, Steve (gb 1) Jones and John Lydon....
Right now
Oh I am an anti-Christ
And I am an anarchist
Don't know what I want
But I know how to get it
I want to destroy your passion boy
'Cause I, I want to be, anarchy
In this fuckin' city

Anarchy for the USA
It's coming sometime, maybe
I give a wrong time stop at traffic line
Your future dream is a sharpie's scheme
'Cause I want to be, anarchy
Well it's the only way to be

Ha ha ha ha ha ha
There are many ways to get what you want
I use the best, well I use the rest
Well I use the enemy
I use anarchy
'Cause I, I want to be, anarchy
Fuck the rat race man

Is this the PMRC
Or is this the DEA
Or is this the CIA
I thought it was the U.S.A.
Or just another country
Some other fuckin' country
And I, want to be, anarchy
Oh I want to fuckin' hear it man
And I, want to be, anarchy
Let's say it again boys
And I, want to be, anarchy
Fuckin' destroy

    General CommentThis is one of those songs that has been covered many times....both successfully, and also in some less than memorable covers. I had never really listened to it until the early 2000's, and it really struck a chord with me because I have always had a "screw the rules" mentality, and it was a punk anthem when it was initially recorded by the Sex Pistols. In the Crue's case, it was a screw you to the recording industry.
