On this day 40 years ago, Virgin Records announced they signed the Sex Pistols. It was their third record label in under nine months, with two failed deals at both EMI & A&M Records. Under Virgin they released their only studio album "Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols" which peaked at #1 on the UK album charts. The album eventually earned platinum certification in the US, selling over 1 million copies.
