Ever Get the Feeling You've Been Released on DVD?

According to pitchfork.com, "The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle" has made it to DVD:

"['Swindle'] features a number of Sex Pistols' songs, including 'God Save the Queen' and 'Pretty Vacant.' Both tracks were filmed at their final show at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, where singer Johnny Rotten uttered the indicative quote, 'Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?' He left the band the next day. The Swindle was spawned in 1977 by Malcolm McLaren, the Pistols' manager, who decided to make a major motion picture featuring the group. Julien Temple, who at the time was a student at the National Film School, picked up the project after it was dumped by director Russ Meyer, and started shooting in the summer of '78. The script outlines McLaren's 10 guidelines for success including: 'Make it as hard as possible for the media to get to the group.' "

Netflix, here I come.
