The Sex Pistols were a British punk band formed in 1975. The band is a favorite of many of Nana's characters, including Nana Osaki, Nobuo Terashima, and Ren Honjo.

Although they lasted just two-and-a-half years and produced only four singles and one studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols, they were one of the most influential acts in the history of popular music, initiated a punk movement in the United Kingdom, and inspired many later punk and alternative rock musicians.

The first incarnation of the Sex Pistols included singer Johnny Rotten, lead guitarist Steve Jones, drummer Paul Cook and bass player Glen Matlock. Matlock was replaced by Sid Vicious early in 1977

History in Nana

The Sex Pistols heavily influenced Ren Honjo and Yasu Takagi in their early band, Brute. This influence carried onto their second band, Black Stones. Nobu Terashima and Nana Osaki, also in Black Stones, were huge fans of the band. Additionally, Sid Vicious' look and bass-playing inspired Honjo greatly. Honjo also played bass on a Sex Pistols tribute album[1]

Nana Osaki was first introduced to the band in high school by Nobu Terashima. He lent her their album Nevermind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols.[2]

Shinichi Okazaki is also a fan as shown at his audition, when Nana asks him to play their song, "Seventeen".[1]
