The bop is climbing the charts
A rather explicit song mocking Prince Andrew has reached the UK top 20 just as the nation celebrates the Queen’s 70-year reign.
Entitled “Prince Andrew Is A Sweaty N***e”, the song is a parody of the popular nursery rhyme the “Grand Old Duke of York.” It was envisioned by Essex punk band The Kunts and is now closing in on the likes of George Ezra, Jax Jones and Eurovision’s Sam Ryder.
Speaking to NME, the band’s frontman said: “For me, having grown up with the folklore around The Sex Pistols’ God Save The Queen getting robbed of the top spot in ’77, a Jubilee celebration has always felt like it could be a good chance to air any grievances one may have with our unelected head of state and her feckless offspring.”
You might remember the incendiary band from their previous exploits that include “Boris Johnson is a f*****g c**t”, and “Boris Johnson is still a f*****g c**t.” Both singles reached number five in the UK chart at their respective times, so here’s to hoping their newest bop exceeds expectations.
The lyrics are rather incendiary, even by The Kunts’ standards, which is precisely why it’s doing so well on the chart.
“The grand old Duke of York, he said he didn’t sweat. So why did he pay 12 million quid to a girl he’d never met?” reads one line. “‘Cause he’s a sweaty nonce (nonce) He’s a sweaty nonce You know it’s true that Prince Andrew Is a sweaty nonce.”
