Today in 1975, the Sex Pistols made their live debut at St. Martin's School Of Art in London, with a performance that lasted 10 minutes.

Though the band was active just two and a half years and released only four singles and one album, their influence lives on, starting the punk movement in the U.K. and inspiring bands with punk influences to this day.
