  • Lyrics
  • This song finds Lethal Bizzle introducing his Fester Skank dance, which is named after Uncle Fester of The Addams Family. Lethal explained to Official Charts website: "The record itself was made in such an organic way; it was born out of my producer Distortion uploading a video of me doing a silly dance to the song on to YouTube and someone saying I looked like Uncle Fester in the comments. I had a feeling it would take off just by the reaction of the dance."
  • This was Lethal Bizzle's third single to stall at #11 on the UK singles chart, leaving him still waiting for his first Top 10 hit. The grime musician previously peaked at #11 with both his 2005 debut "Pow! (Forward)" and 2014's "Rari Workout."
