The first Heavenly Records release by the band is this fan favourite – one of the band’s most infamous songs and one which is still frequently played live. When played live, it usually opens with a famous riff or melody from some other song like Sweet Child o Mine and my favourite version is the one found on the cassette version of Tsunami. The opening single barely charted in the UK but still managed to drum up plenty of attention thanks to the sloganeering and relentless attacks and promotion by the band at the time. While the original version sounds quite tame and slow both now, and when heard alongside later songs, live versions are always ferocious and cause chaos in the audience. A modern punk classic.
