rik….legal problems sorted.


Michael Jackson/Alien Ant Farm – ‘Smooth Criminal’
Rage Against The Machine – ‘Killing In The Name Of’
Alkaline Trio – ‘Private Eye’
McLusky – ‘That Man Will Not Hang’


Still trying to get over the first comment here…

I’ve just remembered, thanks to Holly’s suggestions, that 80s, smooth white soul classic:

Private Eyes – Hall and Oates


The Smiths – Hang the DJ
Dead 60s – Ghost-faced Killer
Kaiser Chiefs – I Predict a Riot
Hard-Fi – Feltham is Singing Out


My brain was still churning away:

Queen – Killer Queen
The Stereophonics – The Bartender and the Thief
Adam Ant – Stand and Deliver
KRS-One – The Sound of Da Police
Buju Banton – Murderer

In my defence, you didn’t say that they had to be good songs!
