Virgin Money, the banking arm of the business empire founded by Virgin Records mastermind Richard Branson, has debuted a line of “punk-themed” credit cards — including three that use the logo and artwork from the Sex Pistols.Branson celebrated the band’s ties to Virgin, with whom the Sex Pistols signed in 1977, in a press release calling Virgin Money a bank that “can be proud of its past.” “The Sex Pistols are an iconic band and an important part of Virgin’s history,” Branson adds.I often recommend keeping a backup card at home in a safe place in case your wallet is ever lost or stolen.The more cards you have, the more you will need to keep track of, so having just a few can help you simplify your overall credit card management.78% of those surveyed, in contrast, preferred to pay for things with a credit or debit card.

“Even after nearly 40 years, the Sex Pistols’ power to provoke is undimmed.” News of the cards’ launch has definitely provoked no small amount of online ire, with plenty of punk fans rushing to point out that this type of endorsement deal is exactly the kind of thing the Sex Pistols loudly railed against during their heyday.
Virgin’s promotional campaign acknowledges the group’s proud outsider stance, encouraging consumers to “put a little bit of rebellion in their pocket.” “In launching these cards, we wanted to celebrate Virgin’s heritage and difference,” explains Michele Greene, the bank’s director of cards.
