Released: December 1996

This was originally going to be a B-side, you know. Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen initially refused permission for the Welsh band to use the sweary sample from ‘Showbiz Kids’, which gives this deliriously catchy protest anthem its title. But when Fagen relented, it came out on its own and promptly became the sweariest UK chart hit ever. It also became SFA’s regular set closer and arguably their most popular song. (AW)
