Pistols At Winterland

This has obviously been knocking around YouTube for some time, but here's a single playlist containing the Sex Pistols' complete, notorious last concert in San Francisco at Winterland (presumably taken from the hard-to-find bootleg DVD), notable not only for the on-stage terminal implosion of the band, but Rotten's palpable sense of disgust and despair throughout. Oh, and the fact that they've actually left Sid's bass plugged in (and far too loudly at first). It's all grim, essential viewing, but Belsen, Problems and No Fun are particularly interesting/appalling. Below, the final moments.
