However, McLaren wanted to negotiate separate deals in every territory, regardless of what the contract stipulated, which angered Branson, as the clause for American distribution was an important one he had fought for. That night after visiting a nearby pub, Rotten, Thomas and Price were attacked by a group of men, and the incident made newspaper headlines the following Tuesday. Johnny Rotten explained its meaning as a working-class expression to "stop talking rubbish". With "Pretty Vacant's" release as a single, it was due to be replaced on the track list. Jamie Reid 's cover concept refrained from including a picture of the group and instead was dayglo red and yellow in colour with cutout lettering and a finish resembling crude screen-prints. London police visited the city's Virgin record store branches and told them they faced prosecution for indecency as stipulated by the Indecent Advertisements Act if they continued to display posters of the album cover in their windows.

During his cross-examination of the arresting officer, he asked why the newspapers The Guardian and Evening Standard which had referred to the album's name had not been charged under the same act. As McLaren's separate deal with Barclay meant that the French release could not be halted and given the Virgin head was aware of how easy it was for import records to arrive in Britain, Branson rushed production of Never Mind the Bollocks to ensure it would come out a week earlier than intended.

At the same time, the group resumed work with Thomas and Price. As a result of these sessions, Thomas and Price began work in earnest on what would become the Sex Pistols' full-length album. However, on 9 November the London Evening Standard announced on its front-page headline "Police Move in on Punk Disc Shops", and reported how a Virgin Records shop manager in Nottingham was arrested for displaying the record after being warned to cover up the word " bollocks ".
