SEX PISTOLS' ROTTEN Ignores 'Guitar Hero III', Attacks Journalists; Video Available

Ryan King of reports: Johnny Rotten's now infamous ranting at Guitar Hero III's launch party in London earlier in the month was captured on's cameras and has now been uploaded on for all to see. Entertainment and fun for all the family!

After introducing himself by saying "[censored], it's rubbish, I hate the whole thing," the SEX PISTOLS singer then goes into the reason why he's there — to promote Guitar Hero III.

"I'll give it to you basic and honest," he says. "The offer came in and I took it home and I played it with a bunch of kids. What I like is it weren't teaching you how to be a rock star, it was teaching you how not to be a rock star..."

And that was the last thing said on the game, after explaining how the SEX PISTOLS re-recorded tracks ("Anarchy In The UK" and "Pretty Vacant"). For what followed was half-an-hour ranting about Tony Blair, screaming "I AM ENGLAND" and throwing microphone at journalists who he thought were "smug."
