On our headphones: Rancid – I Wanna Riot

This week we are mostly bin listenin’ to… Rancid – I Wanna Riot

As thousands take to the streets of the UK to protest the £6,000 a year tuition fee increase proposed by the shady coalition government, it should come as no surprise that playing on our headphones this week was Rancid’s anarchic punk anthem I Wanna Riot.

Released at a time when several relatively unknown punk bands (now recognised the world over) were smashing their way into the consciousness of more mainstream audiences, I Wanna Riot was first heard on Epitaph’s seminal compilation album Punk-O-rama in 1994; an alternate version can also be seen a few years later, featured in the classic Beavis and Butthead do America movie.

Oi!
