Album: The Final CutReleased: 1983Charted:
This follows the album's theme of Roger Waters' anger at British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the Falklands war. This song is about how Hollywood cynically and unforgivably glamorizes war. (thanks, S.D. - Denver, CO)
This is the only track on The Final Cut where David Gilmour sings lead.
It was released as a single, with the lyrics "f--k all that" redubbed as "stuff all that." (thanks, Mark - Ottawa, Canada, for above 2)
A rare copy of a Japanese 7-inch single for this song sold for $3,050 on the online auction site eBay in July 2013.
