Invaders Must Die

Album: Invaders Must Die (2009)
Charted: 49
  • Prodigy keyboardist/producer Liam Howlett co-wrote this song with Does It Offend You, Yeah? frontman James Rushent. Howlett explained to Time Out Dubai: "The first tune on any Prodigy album has got to be something that just smacks you 'round the head. It's a very abrasive-sounding electronic track, kind of different to anything we've done before. I had the track 60% there and hooked up with James from Does It Offend You, Yeah? and he pulled the missing links out of the bag."
  • Howlett explained the album title to Time Out Dubai: Three years ago there was quite a bit of paranoia – people were infiltrating our unit, starting to bleed into what we were. Can't remember whether it was Keith or Maxim, but one of them went, 'F--k it – invaders must die!' I was like, that's the album title right there. We're not f---ing around, man. We are The Prodigy…!'"
