"Original 1977 Sex Pistols two buses “Pretty Vacant” promotional poster. ""Pretty Vacant"" is a song by the English punk rock band the Sex Pistols. It was released on 1 July 1977 as the band's third single and was later featured on their only album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols, released during that same year. The song reached No. 6 on the UK Singles Chart and marked the band's first appearance on the British chart music TV programme Top of the Pops. The song gained attention for vocalist John Lydon's phrasing of the word ""vacant"", emphasising the last syllable to sound like the vulgar word cunt. According to bassist Glen Matlock, the song's main riff was inspired by hearing ""SOS"" by ABBA. The B-side of the single was a cover of the Stooges' ""No Fun"", which the band played on the spot without a proper rehearsal. It was taken from demo sessions recorded by producer Dave Goodman.
The band made a video for ""Pretty Vacant"" (as well as one for ""God Save the Queen"") on 11 and 12 July 1977 at the studios of ITN in Wells Street, London. They were thrown out after throwing cans of lager at the cameramen on the 11th, but came back on the 12th to finish the recording.
NME magazine made it their Single of the Year in 1977. In March 2005, Q magazine placed the song 26th in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks. NME named it the 132nd-greatest song of all time in 2014.[Billboard Magazine said that the lyrics are milder than some of the group's other songs, ""the intense energy level never falters"" but that the ""bombastic guitar riffs"" make the lyrics difficult to hear.
A live version of the track from Filthy Lucre Live was released as a single in 1996, and a 7-inch picture disc was released in 2012.
