Sixty for 60: 3. The Muslims

To celebrate my 60th birthday, I asked my Facebook friends to nominate a favourite song from 2021 – 60 to commemorate the fact I am now 10 years older than Douglas Adams when he died. Enough folk came forward for this to make a blog series.

Today, a second nomination from 5-track – ‘Punch A Nazi’ by The Muslims. The album is called Gentrified Chicken and they describe themselves thus: “THE MUSLIMS is a crunchy, kickass punk band of Black + brown queer muzzies. Your racist dad is a piece of shit and THIS IS NOT A SAFE SPACE.”

And, quite honestly, I am not sure I need to add anything to that. I reckon you get the idea: a raucous, angry, politically-charged goodtime. From North Carolina. Imagine Amyl And The Sniffers or [insert the name of your own favourite punk/thrash/metal band here] and you’ll be most ways there. Political satire and extremism.

Punch that Nazi in the throat
That should keep his no-lips shut
Noose that flag around his neck
Tell the boys to string him up

Beat him up
Best him up, beat him up, beat him up, beat him up
Point em out
Point em our, point em out, point em out, point em out
Beat him up
Best him up, beat him up, beat him up, beat him up
Point em out
Point em our, point em out, point em out, point em out
Beat him up

Punch a Nazi
Punch a Nazi
Punch a Nazi
Punch a Nazi
