  • Lyrics
  • This has been called Sham 69's finest song, and it is hard to disagree. Rather than simply rebellious punk, it is a true youth anthem. Including a football-type chant, it reached #9 on the UK singles chart.

    Running to 3 minutes 8 seconds, it was co-written by the regular team of Jimmy Pursey and Dave Parsons. It was released on the Polydor label in July 1978 backed by "Sunday Morning Nightmare."
  • A cover version was released by the German punk band Did Toten Hosen on the Virgin label in 1992 along with "Individual" and "Blackpool." >>
