1972年，尚未成年的史蒂夫·琼斯（Steve Jones，吉他手）和保罗·库克（Paul Cook，鼓手）决定组成一 个乐队时，绝对没有意识到他们将要承担策动摇滚乐史上另一场革命的使命，尽管伦敦青年的视野早已因为披头士和滚石的成功而拓宽到世界范围，但成功的殿堂却没有现成的阶梯吉他手史蒂夫·琼斯和鼓手保罗·库克加上他们的一个同班同学便是性手枪乐队的前身河滨（Strand）乐队，而后又有2个小伙子入伙儿，原因大不了是河滨乐队装备齐全。乐器由史蒂夫·琼斯提供，实际上，它们全是琼斯偷来的，史蒂夫·琼斯给一家商店做周末终点工。这里必须提到一个人，该商店的拥有者——－马尔科姆·麦克拉伦（Malcom McLaren）一位满脑子反社会、反传统思想的商人。麦克莱仁开的商店十分赚钱，但他的野心并不在商业上，他一直试图成为音乐制作人和乐队经纪人。他和他的店员史蒂夫·琼斯因此也不是一般的老板与雇员关系。琼斯缠着麦克拉伦为河滨寻找一块排练场地时，麦克拉伦爽快地照办了。在这样一位老板的诱导下，另一位店员格莱思·迈特罗克（Glen Matlock）也加入了摇滚行列，作了河滨乐队的贝司手。目前首要问题是为河滨找一名歌手。麦克拉伦早留意上来他商店的一位常客，并得知这位染绿发的少年叫约翰·里顿（John Lydon）。里顿用点唱机随着艾丽斯·库珀（Alice Cooper）演唱为乐队试音，很令人满意，几次彩排之后，麦克拉伦已看出他正是乐队需要的乐队人员已经就位，马尔科姆·麦克拉伦开始按他的思想和生活方式塑造它，主唱约翰·里顿牙齿不甚美观常被队友中的吉他手史蒂夫·琼斯戏称为“烂牙”，麦克拉伦遂为其取名为约翰尼·罗顿（Johnny Rotten）意义为腐朽，烂掉的，麦克拉伦以此来显示社会本身的病态和既成观念的腐 朽。他的总店名日“性”（Sex），店里出售的时装上曾有过一**的标语“性手枪”（Sex Pistols）此刻被籍来做 队名。河滨与性手枪相比的确未免太不够刺激。单纯翻唱一直是小乐队们的生存手段，但显然已不再符合雄心勃勃的性手枪的计划。
1975年主唱约翰·罗顿(Johnny Rotten)、吉他手史蒂夫·琼斯(Steve Jones)、贝司手格伦·马特洛克（Glen Matlock）、鼓手保罗·库克（Paul Cook）成立的性手枪乐队于1976年与英国EMI公司签约,但是由于在电视台采访的言行出格,在发行第一张单曲<Anachy In The U.K.>时,即遭解雇.贝司手Glen Matlock离队,原为鼓手的席德·威舍斯(Sid Vicioue)担任了贝司手(后死于毒品摄入过量,但也成了最具PUNK精神的代表人物).乐队与A＆M唱片公司签约准备发行单曲<上帝保佑女王>(God Save The Queen)----这首歌在92无敌中同样被无敌BAND演绎过----却由于其攻击与讽刺性,又被唱片公司解雇.在第三家唱片公司——Virgin的努力下<God Save the Queen>终于发行.一经推出,这张唱片就四处遭禁,但乐队继续"死不悔改"，在伊丽莎白女王二世登基25周年纪念日时,在泰晤士的游轮上狂嚎“上帝保佑女王,她不是人类,这里没有未来,做梦的英格兰...”直到警察把他们抓起来才算完.更加让王室难堪的是,即时的性手枪乐队竟然还登上了BBC排行榜冠军，BBC不得不将他们的歌放到第二名,以息众怒(笑).之后,这句著名的"没有未来"几乎成为所有朋克人民的呼吁口号,性手枪乐队可谓名声大作.

The Sex Pistols may have only been together for two years in the late '70s, but they changed the face of popular music. Through their raw, nihilistic singles and violent performances, the band revolutionized the idea of what rock & roll could be. In England, the group was considered dangerous to the very fabric of society and was banned across the country; in America, they didn't have the same impact, but countless bands in both countries were inspired by the sheer sonic force of their music, while countless others were inspired by their independent, do-it-yourself ethics. Even if they didn't release any singles by themselves, there was an implicit independence in the way they played their music and handled their career. The band gave birth to the massive independent music underground in England and America that would soon include bands that didn't have a direct musical connection to the Sex Pistols' initial three-minute blasts of rage, but couldn't have existed without those singles.
Guitarist Steve Jones and drummer Paul Cook were regulars at a boutique owned by their manager, Malcolm McLaren; bassist Glen Matlock worked at the store. Vocalist John Lydon, who would later perform under the name Johnny Rotten, met the rest of the group at the shop and was asked to join the band. While the band played simple rock & roll loudly and abrasively, Rotten arrogantly sang of anarchy, abortion, violence, fascism, and apathy; without Rotten, the band wouldn't have been threatening to England's government — he provided the band's conceptual direction, calculated to be as confrontational and threatening as possible. The publicity caused by their caustic first single "Anarchy in the U.K." caused the band to be dropped by their record label, EMI. Matlock was fired before their next single "God Save the Queen," which was released on Virgin; it was banned by the BBC. Matlock's replacement was Sid Vicious, a tough street kid who, unlike the rest of the band, couldn't play his instrument.
After releasing one album in 1977, the band headed over to the U.S. for a tour in January of 1978; it lasted 14 days. Rotten left the band after their show at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom on January 14, heading back to New York; he would form Public Image Limited later that year. McLaren tried to continue the band but Cook and Jones soon turned against him. In the two decades following the Sex Pistols' implosion, an endless stream of outtakes, demos, repackagings, and live shows were released on a variety of labels, which only helped their cult grow.
In 1996, to celebrate their impending twentieth anniversary, the Sex Pistols reunited, with original bassist Glen Matlock taking the place of the deceased Sid Vicious. The band embarked on an international tour in June of 1996, releasing the Filthy Lucre Live album the following month. Four years later, Julien Temple (who helmed the band's first movie, The Great Rock & Roll Swindle) directed the documentary film The Filth & the Fury. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
