An extended trailer of Danny Boyle’s upcoming Sex Pistols series, Pistol, has been released on May 4. The video started with a voice-over that said, “England’s terribly boring. Nothing ever changes,” cues Brotherhood of Man’s 1976 hit, “Save Your Kisses For Me,” while a montage of clips shows the dull reality of Britain in the 1970.

Then the voice-over changes and said:

“We’re invisible. We’re pissed off. We’re bored. So maybe that should be our image.”

Sex Pistols’ manager Malcolm McLaren portrayed by Thomas Brodie-Sangster will then begin to guide Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Steve Cook, and Glen Matlock to dominate the world with their music. McLaren argues at one point of the trailer:

“Whether you can play is not the criteria. It’s whether you’ve got something to say.”

Rotten, played by Anson Boon, tells a fan:

“Actually, we’re not into music. We’re into chaos.”

Aside from Brodie-Sangster and Boon, the series also stars Toby Wallace, Louis Partridge, Jacob Slater, Paul Cook, Christian Lees, Sydney Chandler, Talulah Riley, Maisie Williams and Emma Appleton. The show is based on Steve Jones‘ 2017 memoir Lonely Boy: Tales From a Sex Pistol.

Last year, a tension was formed between the former Sex Pistols members, as John Lydon attempted to block the show from using the band’s songs, to which Jones and Cook filed a lawsuit, and won, allowing the production to proceed. All six episodes will premiere on Hulu on May 31st.
