Released on 1 July 1977 as the band’s third single, ‘Pretty Vacant’ later featured on “Never mind the Bollocks” – the band’s only album, released that same year. It reached number 6 on the UK Singles Chart and marked the band’s first appearance on BBC’s ‘Top of the Pops’. According to bassist Glen Matlock, the song’s main riff was inspired by hearing “S.O.S.” by ABBA.
