För Alla Namn Vi Inte Får Använda

Album: Europa Europa (2014)
  • songfacts ®
  • The Knife wrote this song for an "anti-national cabaret" called 'Europa Europa.' A collaboration with the queer feminist art group Ful, the political activist project focuses on Sweden and the EU's immigration policies.
  • The song is about migration politics (its title translates as "For all the names we can not use"). According to the YouTube description, the tune aims to "praise all those hundreds of thousands of people who defy the cameras, the deadly waters, the barbed wire, the violence and the compact political resistance, and make it across the external and internal borders of Europe every year."
  • The song's music video was directed by past Knife collaborator Roxy Farhat. It shows a group of men and women taking part in a dance choreographed by dance group Dom Dugliga known as the "political Macarena."
