An EXTREMELY Brief Analysis

I found it interesting that I couldn’t think of any original punk rock songs (I’m not saying there aren’t any!) with the word fire in the title. After all, pyromania is a fairly anarchic affliction and you’d think it would be deserving of more coverage from that most anarchic of music genres.

That said though, the award for best use of the word fire in the list above has to go to techno-punk legends, the Prodigy.

There, told you it was brief!

On a Serious Note

Playing with the old Swan Vestas is never a good idea. Whilst it makes for a good tune, fire is dangerous and can kill.

If you’re intent on being a twisted firestarter though, you might want to consider going on a fire safety training course to learn how to use a fire extinguisher.

And remember, in the case of a genuine emergency, the UK number is 999, which ironically is a punk band.

Over to You…

There’s bound to be loads I’ve missed. Stick ’em below and to make it interesting, let’s open it up to include fire related songs with smoke, burn, hell, etc.. in the title.
