I'd like to think Nigel Blackwell will find a good way to take the piss out of them in a similar vein to this thread on the next HMHB album.

I would love to hear that.

I wondered why Bob Vylan was mad at IDLES and one reason was because they took ages to say something about BLM. As Bob said, David Guetta not putting out a statement is one thing but when IDLES' entire shtik is being left-wing, you'd expect them to comment on it.

Also, WTF is bad about being nice to immigrants?

A level of unearned self regard that would make Kasabian blush.

I think they suffer a bit from being the only left wing voices doing political stuff in the popular 6music indie sphere. If they were the Sham 69 to a better band's Clash with a Billy Bragg around as well then I think people would be less hard on them but as there is so little protest music at the moment they have to be all things to all people

Some how this shower of bastards have got onto the NHL 21 sound track with the god awful 'song' Mr Motivator


I am I and I intend to go, go, go
Like Connor McGregor with a samurai sword on rollerblades
Like Vasyl Lomachenko after four pints of Gatorade
Like Kathleen Hanna with bear claws grabbing Trump by the pussy
Like Delia Smith after ten Chardonnays making me a nice cookie
How d'you like them cliches?
Let's seize the day
All hold hands, chase the pricks away
Let's seize the day
All hold hands, chase the pricks away
You can do it
You can do it
Yes you can
Woo-hoo!
I am I and I intend to go, go, go
Like Frida Kahlo painting of the poor on your fuck off wall
Like Tracey Emin in her unmade bed listening to The Fall
Like Flava Flav in the club riding on the back of John Wayne
Like David Attenborough clubbing seal clubbers with LeBron James
How'd you like them cliches?
Let's seize the day
All hold hands, chase the pricks away
Let's seize the day
All hold hands, chase the pricks away
You can do it
You can do it
You can do it
Woo!
It's all about the confidence
You're Joe Cal-fucking-zaghe
You're Joe Cal-fucking-zaghe
You're Joe Cal-fucking-zaghe
You're Joe Cal-fucking-zaghe
You're Joe Cal-fucking-zaghe
You're Joe Cal-fucking-zaghe
Let's seize the day
All hold hands, chase the pricks away
Let's seize the day
All hold hands, chase the pricks away
You can do it
You can do it

Are these even cliches? And do I like them? Do I fuck

Fuck off, just the sound of them, they sound like something that they would listen to in American History X (the band Idles portray a different message) They're shit fuck off, don't poison my ears again, give me George Ezra or, Adele, fucking S Club 7 over this. Piss off

Astonished upon googling those lyrics that they turn out to be a real song.

Can't stand their random references to celebrities to add some colour to their meaningless lyrics, this one takes that strategy to breaking point.

None of that makes any fucking sense. Why would LeBron James club seal clubbers?

Because he’s a black hero and if you think he wouldn’t club seal clubbers then that makes you a racist. Please try to keep up with their humble genius craftsmanship.

I came home from my business job the other day in my suit and tie and to my dismay someone had broken in and painted of the poor all over my fuck off wall!

No image better expresses a battle cry for egalitarianism than a shitfaced Delia Smith baking some bloke a biscuit, does it?

“I’m totes a feminist, yeah? I respect women an’ that. Now make me a cookie, love.”

ETA: the confused little girl at the beginning looks like me when I was a toddler. That’s the only good thing I have to say about this bilge.

“It’s like what Wagner did, when he considered the size of the room he was playing in, and realised that the orchestra all playing different things at the same time was creating noise – whereas if they all played the same thing at the same time, it created a huge ball of sound. So that’s what we did too.
"like" acting like fucking Atlas there mate

Is that from an interview? They talk some amazing shite in interviews

Read one where they said one of their songs was like a trap song

Went and listened to it and it sounded just like all their other stuff, like a jesus lizard impression by someone not paying attention
