Σε ιστορικής σημασίας αναδείχθηκε από τη Βρετανική κυβέρνηση τo σπίτι των Sex Pistols στο Λονδίνο επί της οδού DenMark 6, όπου η μπάντα έζησε και ηχογράφησε την πρωτοποριακή για την εποχή punk μουσική που σημάδεψε τα 70s.

Το οίκημα έχει αναγνωριστεί επίσημα από το πρακτορείο Historic England ως «ιδιαιτέρως σημαντικό κτίριο ξεχωριστού ενδιαφέροντος», σύμφωνα με τον Guardian.

Όπως αναφέρει ο κατάλογος ιστορικών κτιρίων: «Το graffiti του John Lydon (Johnny Rotten) στο πίσω μέρος του εξωτερικού του κτιρίου είναι σπάνιο παράδειγμα του πολιτιστικού φαινομένου της Punk Rock, αποτυπωμένο στο φυσικό υλικό του κτιρίου».

Pistols' manager Malcolm McLaren rented the outbuilding between 1975-1977 early in the band's career, according to a press release from Historic England. The downstairs space was used as a recording studio, where the band produced its early demos, while the upstairs was home to band members Glen Matlock and Steve Jones, according to the statement.

The houses are two of eight properties that were originally built between 1686-1691 on the street, made famous as Tin Pan Alley, where the Rolling Stones recorded its first album (at Regent Sound Studios, at no. 4), and Elton John worked at a music publishing company and wrote "Your Song," according to the press release.

As well as celebrity graffiti, the properties boast notable architectural features including a mid-18th-century staircase, historic panelling, and cornices. This is an upstairs room at 6-7 Denmark Street.

The original staircase is well-preserved.

Of course, for Sex Pistols fans, the graffiti is the most interesting feature. Sid Vicious was given a less than flattering portrayal, and the name "Ego Sloshos."

Rotten depicted Nancy Spungen, the girlfriend of Sid Vicious, naked with a cigarette in her mouth. She's known as "Nanny Spungen" here.

Steve Jones is referred to as "Fatty Jones" in Rotten's graffiti.

Malcolm McLaren is pictured clutching a stack of cash.

Rotten also left a self-portrait on the wall, though Pistols fans are unlikely to see it in person.

Rotten's graffiti was added to by bands who lived in the property after the Pistols' departure, according to the press release. The Rich Kids moved in after the Pistols, followed by Bananarama, according to Grice. The properties' listing coincides with a citywide celebration of punk music: "Punk London: 40 Years of Subversive Culture."
