ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of the emergence of new wave bands in Great Britain. The performer group The Sex Pistols has launched it's new music release "God Save the Queen." Although the record does not has a single filthy word in it, yet it has been banned on all the radio stations and barred from every retail store. The Sex Pistols are prohibited from performing in England, still "God Save the Queen" is in the top five on the hit lists. New Wave is best described as industrial strength hard rock. Musicians of New Wave and their fans do not go for kinky sex, nor any bleating whiny protest lyrics. They go right for the jugular.
