Permission Refused!



Seems Sony didn't want this to be associated with NuLiebore...

We've all stopped believin'

When Tony Blair was running for Prime Minister, D:Ream's Things Can Only Get Better was Labour's election theme song.

So Gordon Brown ordered his advisers to trawl the archives to find a suitable anthem for him. They came up with the 1970s song Don't Stop Believin' by Journey, whose lyrics somewhat aptly go: 'Working hard to get my fill, everybody wants a thrill

'Payin' anything to roll the dice, just one more time Some will win, some will lose Some were born to sing the blues Oh, the movie never ends It goes on and on and on and on Don't stop believin' Hold on to the feelin' Streetlight people . . .'

Sadly, when Labour asked Sony if they could use it, the response was swift: 'Absolutely not.'

I would have thought that "No Feelings" by the Pistols would have been far more apt for the one eyed cunt as the Words to the song, mirror what it thinks of everyone else precisely.

Poison - Alice Cooper.
The Final Countdown - Europe.
Tragedy - BeeGees.

Sony have just gone up in my estimation ..

Might I suggest McSnot uses the somewhat repetitive, though totally apt chant of ..

"What-a-Cunt, What-a-Cunt, What-a-Cunt" ..

Which can be regularly heard at most Football grounds & is completely Copyright free ?

They'll just have to hack the Tories wireless network and download it for free...

Surely Jilted John's cry of "Gordon Is A Moron" would be more appropriate? (I'm amazed that hasn't been re-released, to be honest)

Although whoever wins, I feel rather like the lyrics of the Pistols' "God Save The Queen"... there is no future.
