Caught By The Fuzz by Supergrass

Album: I Should CocoReleased: 1995Charted:
43
  • "Fuzz" is slang for "Police," and this song is about an incident when lead singer Gaz Coombes was caught in possession of cannabis - he was 15 at the time. Coombes recalled to The Observer May 6, 2012 that he was in an old Ford Fiesta with a headlight out when he got pulled over. "I stuck the hash down my pants," he said, "but I had it in a little metal tin. I was standing on the pavement, and the tin just went all the way down my trousers and landed on the pavement with a ting. The copper went, 'What's that, son?'"
  • One member of the band Presidents Of The United States Of America said, "This song is exactly what being a teenager sounds like." (thanks, jacob - waterford, CT)
  • I Should Coco was the biggest-selling debut album on the Parlophone label since the Beatles.

It was weed....and this is the 2nd to greatest song ever behind,Another girl,another planet by the Only OnesSupermanfriday - Wigan, United Kingdom
Blow is slang for cocaine (as it is often snorted), but Gaz was caught with a prescription drug, not cannabis. According to wikipedia at least.
Great song!

Isn't there a line:
"Who sold you the blow?
Well it was, no one I know"
Is it marijuana or cocaine? Or did I misunderstand the lyric?
