I love it. Can’t wait to hear the studio version and sad that I can’t make it to the live show this year.

Sounds like the Dropkick Murphys but I like it.

Very catchy. Sounds like some old army song. The Yanks are coming!
Alice looks like he doesn't quite now what to do with himself.

As am I. Best England World Cup song in my opinion, by quite a long way.

Am I the only one here to find this a very weird song to appear on a rock album? Be it that the spoken part somehow reminds me of the end of Elected ( no coincidence I guess) , but it's lacking the power Elected had from its first notes..
Catchy yes, but not what I expected/hoped to hear from HV or Alice.
you really wouldn't understand..

Agree it's very different but now I've got over the surprise I'm quite pleased that there will be some variety on the album. Looking forward to it.

It's worth remembering this is not an Alice Cooper album. Especially as he is excusing himself from lyric tampering.

Am I wrong or did I see/hear an attempted fart joke in the song? That's gotta be a first for Alice or any other artist that I can think of.
Cooper took the stage,put on the best rock show since Gloria Estefan/Miami Sound Machine in 1987.

I think so, although not a first for Perry at toilet humour. There is a sustained belch on the "Get A Grip" album by Aerosmith.

This sounds like another (weaker) Depp penned song, with a nod to "Elected". As others have pointed out I 100% hear "Vindaloo" in this. The fart bit I hope gets dropped live.

It really does sound just like the Vindaloo song. :)

Happy to be corrected but wasn't that basic "vindaloo" melody line around BEFORE the song? IWasn't it a football chant long before.. which they used for the song.
If not, it's a complete lift as it's pretty much identical.
And the fart gag is just embarrassing... just terrible.

Geez, About 20 seconds of that was enough to know that I don't ever plan on hearing the whole thing.

You're right. Been trying to find out what and when from some friends but the best I've got so far is agreement that it's been around for ages but perhaps only committed to a recorded song when vindaloo came along.

Missed the fart reference till now. Oh dear..

Well this album is already polarizing.
