From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Here Rotten denounces a society that forces its women to seek illegal and potentially life-threatening abortions. Drummer Paul Cook next leads the way into a chaotic "Holidays In The Sun," which begins with an annoyingly long repetitive thud of his bass drum, but when the Pistols launch into the song proper, it is remarkably well played, with even Vicious managing to contribute to the unstoppable force. Continuing to provoke the audience, Rotten next inquires "What just hit me in the head?
