Released: November 1999

Surely the best and most successful song to reference a Nazi symbol in relation to what singer Bobby Gillespie called “American international terrorism”. Not the sexiest subject matter, but when you ally it to such a ferocious sonic assault as the band did than you’ve got a bit of a winner on your hands. It was the first single to be released from the group’s ‘XTRMNTR’, whose pummeling, pile-driving music and overtly political lyrical content proved a surprising winner with fans more used to the band’s hedonistic approach to life.
