The Sex Pistols ‘My Way’ showed up on the latest episode of the Epix crime drama series Pennyworth last night — Pennyworth, Season 1, Episode 10, “Marianne Faithfull“.
The song was played during the episode and over the end credits.
The Sex Pistols ‘My Way‘ was the now-defunct English punk rock band’s most successful single.
Released in June, 1978, it was the fifth single for the band but was a decidedly strange one.
Recorded in Rio de Janeiro, the single’s A-side was ‘No One is Innocent‘ with vocals provided by the notorious Great Train Robbery criminal Ronnie Biggs who was in exile in Brazil at the time.
The B-side was ‘My Way‘, and was recorded in a studio in Paris.
The single, with its A and B sides, was released in the UK where it stayed in the Top 75 for 10 weeks. It’s ultimate spot was #7 on the UK Singles chart.
The band’s version of ‘My Way‘ is, of course, a cover of the iconic 1969 song by Frank Sinatra.
