Then again, we'll never be trusted with credit again, why do we care?

Say the words “punk rock” aloud and a few things come to mind: spitting, mohawks, metal clothing, rebellion and banking debt. Wait … what the fuck?

Earlier this week the Virgin Money enterprises announced it would be unloading on consumers a special edition "Sex Pistols themed" credit card series.

The Sex Pistols — most known for challenging the UK’s governmental oppression and veering far from the status quo — will be branded across three separate designs with accounts tied directly to MasterCard.

A statement announcing the cards said, "It's time for consumers to put a little bit of rebellion in their pocket." Because soul-ravaging debt is so fucking punk! Unity, and/or an APR of 18.9 percent!!!

"For a long time now, UK banks have all been the same,” adds Michele Greene, Director of Cards at Virgin Money. “They have the same products, the same services and the same attitude towards customers. At Virgin Money, we are aiming to change that.

“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.”

Which, whatever, Virgin and its creator Richard Branson have actually been at the forefront of progressive thinking and challenge things just as the Sex Pistols did, but didn’t anyone at the offices have the wherewithal to warn a rather large company of the rather larger pushback it would get from the hypocrisy?

Then again, the fuck do we care, we do all of our business on burner phones and IOUs — not a chance in flame-burning hell we’ll ever get a credit card from them anyways. Oi, Oi, Oi!
