Songfacts®:

  • Singer Rou Reynolds (From Kerrang! May 2, 2009): "I'd just read Tescopoly by Andrew Simms, which is about how supermarkets use their legal might to crush small businesses and intimidate local councils. A big supermarket was going to open a big store around the corner from where I live. Everyone in the area was really against it as it's the sort of thing that ruins small shops in the community. Our local council didn't have enough money to fight back against the supermarket, so our community got involved and did everything we could to stop it."
  • This was the first single released from Enter Shikari's sophomore album Common Dreads.
