In the theatrical release there is a film clip of punk rocker and former Sex Pistol Sid Vicious doing his version of 'My Way' the song made famous by Frank Sinatra. In the theatrical release, and first broadcasts on Showtime, the song was heard in its entirety. Upon release to home video, Paul Anka, author of the song, refused to allow the song to be included. According to the rolling caption on the home video and DVD version, no excuse was given, and no amount of money would sway him. Ironically, the performance can be seen and heard, complete, on the Theatrical, video and DVD releases of the film The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle (1980).
