Not a Sex Pistols album, rather than a compilation of many Punk bands. The result is not very good, unlike Never Mind the Bollocks (greatest punk album in my opinion) but this album feels plastic and fake, it's just a soundtrack to a movie.

"My way" is hilarious...the movie "Goodfellas" closes with it.
