‘911’ IS NOT A JOKE

GORILLAZ‘ collaboration with D-12 is now available online.

The track, ‘911’, is now available to stream via the animated group’s official website, www.gorillaz.com.

As previously reported on NME.COM, the track was inspired by the terrorist attacks in the US. It won’t be available in the shops and also features former Specials lead singer Terry Hall

The song was recorded after the D-12 posse got stranded in the UK just two days after the suicide hijacks on September 11 and describes the actual events of the day as well as the aftermath of the atrocities – and talks about Osama Bin Laden.

The D-12 rappers take it in turns to sing. The lyrics talk of “terrorists in the sky”, “poisonous warfare” and pledge revenge – “my bullets come in threes like trilogies”.

It continues: “Put the knife away, missiles always strike and blaze/So much smoke you can’t tell the difference between night and day”.
