Thou Shalt Always Kill

They ripped off an Edward Lear poem to come up with part of their name, and it’s clear that Dan Le Sac and Scroobius Pip like riffing off contemporary culture on this song. Here, vocalist Pip wanders around London while rapping through a laundry list of things we “shalt not do” (like take the name Johnny Cash in vain or judge Lethal Weapon by Danny Glover) while Le Sac punches out glassy electro beats in the background. Britain endorsed this track as the “thinking man’s anthem,” and it’s garnered other titles like “track of the year” and “hottest track in the world.” But then, Pip tells us, “thou shalt not put musicians and recording artists on ridiculous pedestals,” so try not to get too excited.
