Sex Pistols Frontman John Lydon Honors Queen Elizabeth II – ‘Send Her Victorious’

Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten, honored the death of Queen Elizabeth II with a short and respectful statement: “Rest in Peace Queen Elizabeth II,” Lydon tweeted shortly after the Queen died. “Send her victorious.”

The “send her victorious” quote was taken from “God Save The Queen,” which is Great Britain’s national anthem, but also the title of the Sex Pistols’ own rebellious punk anthem. The Sex Pistols seemingly dragged the Queen in their song referring to her as “no human being” and “no future” for England.
