Fighting In The Street

Album: Greatest Hits Vol. 1 (1980)

Songfacts®:

  • In his autobiography Cockney Reject, lead vocalist Jeff Turner said of this uptempo track it "was about our way of life and the only bit of politics on the album - or anti-politics if you like."

    Like all Cockney Rejects songs it is short and to the point; running to 2 minutes 37 seconds, the group composition is the fourth track on their debut album. >>
