19. The Sex Pistols
Sex Pistols is definitely one of the most iconic and most controversial bands in this list. While their initial career lasted just two and a half years, the band did manage to be remembered as one of the most influential bands in the history that also initiated the punk movement in the UK. Fun fact, Sex Pistols were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but they did not attend the ceremony and called the museum “a piss stain”.
