1970s punk-rock legends, the Sex Pistols, will feature on a range of Virgin Money credit cards.

Despite some of their music fighting consumerism, the band's name and artwork will be used to jazz-up the bank's credit cards.

There are currently plans for three different cards, two featuring artwork from its 'Never Mind The Bollocks' album, and another for the band's hit single 'Anarchy in the UK'.

This isn't the first time that Sex Pistols front man John Lydon has lent himself to promoting a brand; in 2008, he fronted a campaign for Country Life butter.

Virgin Money said it was “time for consumers to put a little bit of rebellion in their pocket”.

Michele Greene, the bank’s director of cards, said: “In launching these cards, we wanted to celebrate Virgin’s heritage and difference. The Sex Pistols challenged convention and the established ways of thinking — just as we are doing today in our quest to shake up UK banking.”
