“Now it’s 09 and I’m running with the Based God
Fire in  my eyes mix my soul with the napalm.”

I remember seeing this for the first time so clearly. It was a revelation. Changed my life. Changed rap forever. #TYBG

This is a radical ass record, it really is. Still sounds pretty otherworldly and futuristic. The version with the extended instrumental opening particularly. This is not that version, it’s the pop version with the Graduate video and it’s STILL fucking next level dystopian etheria.

Perfect peak experience pop music. I look forward to hearing this when I’m 100 and weeping tears of joy and hiraeth.

Me and my Dad recently came to the conclusion that Common People is the greatest single of the britpop era. HOWEVER – I actually prefer this version. It has more emotional impact. It makes the hairs on the bak of my everything stand up and brings a cannonball to my throat and makes my soul fluttery and brings tears to my eyes. Its incredible.

One of my favourite memories is playing it at my little bother’s wedding. I’d quite like this played at my viking funeral when the arrows set me aflame.

Just remembered that time me and Swells started a campaign to get Daphne And Celeste on the Reading Festival bill.  This is way before online petitions and all that. They did it in the end too. The metal fans were really angry and threw pennies and excrement and a fucking SPEAR at them.

PUNK FUCKING ROCK.
