"God Save the King", alternatively "God Save the Queen" (dependent on the title of the reigning monarch), is the national or royal anthem in most Commonwealth realms, their territories, and the British Crown Dependencies.

In 1977, the Sex Pistols recorded a song titled "God Save the Queen" in open reference to the National Anthem and the Queen's Silver Jubilee celebrations that year, with the song intending to stand for sympathy for the working class and resentment of the monarchy.
