London, June 18 (ANI): Sex Pistols' anti-monarchist punk song 'God Save the Queen' is on a list of music proposed for the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.
The controversial track, banned by the BBC in 1977, is among 86 on a leaked playlist being considered for the July 27 show to be played alongside some more notable classics.
The song includes the lines: "God save the Queen, the fascist regime...God save the Queen, she ain't no human being" and ends: "No future, no future, no future for you," the Telegraph reported.
Use of the track reflects an eclectic and controversial style to be adopted by Danny Boyle, the creative director, in contrast with that of the Golden Jubilee concert earlier this month.
The list also includes Frankie Goes To Hollywood's 'Relax', which was also banned by the BBC when it was released in 1984 on the grounds of its explicit lyrics.
Other music featuring on the list of 86 tracks is more traditional, including patriotic favourites such as 'Land Of Hope And Glory', 'Jerusalem' and the 'Dambusters March'.
Tracks by the elder statesmen of British pop music are included, such as 'The Beatles', the 'Rolling Stones', Pink Floyd and David Bowie.
And there are other classics such as 'London Calling by The Clash', 'Going Underground' by The Jam, 'My Generation' by The Who and 'Rudy' by The Specials.
Among the fun tunes listed are 'My Boy Lollipop' and 'Tiger Feet', but Cliff Richard, Elton John, and Tom Jones have been left out of the Diamond Jubilee Concert.
The music will be mixed together by Underworld - DJs Karl Hyde and Rick Smith - at Abbey Road Studios and the pair have included their own dance music classic Born Slippy, which featured in Boyle's film Trainspotting, as well as the Prodigy's Firestarter.
Boyle, 55, has already revealed that the spectacular will feature a Glastonbury-style "mosh pit" but an Olympics spokesman said that the show is being kept under wraps as they want the ceremony to be a fantastic surprise for the people of Britain.
"We want the ceremony to be a fantastic surprise for the watching world, and we want the British public to be proud of it," the Telegraph quoted Olympic spokesman as saying.
"There is endless speculation about the content - much of which is simply guesswork, as we are keeping the show under wraps," he added. (ANI)
