Rotten


by John Lydon // Picador


by Jamie Reid. God Save the Queen (Single cover),1977. Newsprint, photocopy and paper.

I didn't realize that the band logo used on "Never Mind the Bollocks" was a photostat copy of the cut and paste type used on God Save the Queen. I still don't know what fonts were used in the original.


While doing research, I found this great article uncovering the background story behind the rock band logos.

Nice, bold tie-in.
