More swearing song-related goodness ahoy!
1. Nine Inch Nails- Closer (The Downward Spiral)
I could have used quite a few Trent Reznor/NIN songs for this (particularly of the 'Pretty Hate Machine album) but none of those songs have such an awesome video as this one! Swearing and homo-erotic Star Trek clips? Yes please!
2. Dead Kennedys- Nazi Punks Fuck Off (In God We Trust)
Do this really need any introduction? I could have used a number of Dead Kennedys songs but this one has passion and venom and is a short, sharp poke in the eye to dumbfuck nazis (punks or otherwise)
3. Crass- Do They Owe Us A Living?
Another jolly punk song to all sing along to.
4. Ian Dury and the Blockheads- There Ain't Half Been Some Clever Bastards
This was the b-side to his 1979 number one smash hit 'Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick' and was actually banned from being played in my household by my dad! I'm not sure what he most objected to, the continual use of the word bastard ( though not in any derogatory sense, more in awe and appreciation- which totally went over my head as an 10 year old!) or the word 'shitless'. Hard to say and even harder to ask as he's dead (both my dad and Ian Dury, though not at the same time)
This is a lovely, gentle palette cleanser of a song after all those loud, nasty louts shouting 'fuck'.
Go check out more Ian Dury songs a.s.a.p, you won't be disappointed.
Part five is slowly coming round the mountains.............................stay tuned
