Damn good song though, never heard it before so thanks.

I didn't hear any racist lyrics, being proud of your country doesn't make you racist. :rolleyes:

It's late, and that was loud, so I didn't quite catch all of the last verse, but it doesn't sound racist to me. National pride is often confused with racism (although this seems to be particularly common in this country), which isn't fair at all. He said IRA, not Irish, and I think I heard mention of 7/7 and at that point there wasn't any pointing the finger either. Plus, he loves a curry

I don't think so. However, one of the few songs with rapping in which has made me laugh, the part about semolina :lol:
It's actually got a good sound to it tbf.
Interestingly this is this song got the guy who wrote it (Gary) arrested for inciting racial hatred:

The band anglo saxon aren't too bad, just ignore the slightly more than obvious nationalism if you're not into being proud - some of the music is not too bad.

I haven’t read the lyrics, but there seems to be no racist words in the song,
so it’s probably ok.

Only one thing (about a different aspect): if they love England, they should
work on the video. It doesn’t portray England very well IMO. I mean there’s
much more to it than nearly empty roads and pubs. They should
portray more cheerful images, then the video (and the song) would be more
successful IMHO.

Why is it not obvious whether the video is racist or not? You could've at least put down your opinion (so we can laugh at it).

Umm, well it depends on what these line means; "Sold down the river" "every town has falls down to it's knees" Does seem to be having a dig. Personally don't like the song

"we will stand up and take back & stop this disease" I think lines a bit dodgy. Makes me cringe a bit really, i'm definitely not a fan or patriotism though

No although much of TSR will try to say it is because its wrong to love your country apparently.

The dude(s) are trying to create controversy so that people will buy the record(s) that they make.

Not great music in my opinion.

How do people get away with making music this bad?!? If I had it my way they'd be hung, drawn and quartered.
