Pulp front man Jarvis Cocker may be a bit more mainstream than your usual artist featured at Aural Aggravation, but this is crisis. Besides, there’s no question about the prospect of getting a song entitled ‘Cunts Are Still Running the World’ that slams capitalism and right-wing governments to number one would be an ultimate act of subversion. Which is why it gets the Aural Aggro vote (unlike the cuntiest of cunts, Boris lying bastard Johnson).

So what happened?

A fun little Facebook group, started by a couple of lefty music fans has, this week, become the focus of national and international attention.

Rising from nothing to 20,000+ members in its 4 days of existence, the FB group ‘Fancy Getting “C**ts Are Still Running The World” to UK Xmas No. 1?” has now received the endorsement of Mr Cocker’s label Rough Trade Records AND the man himself – and he’s decided that proceeds from single sales this week will benefit SHELTER, the homeless charity.

Purchase the song from iTunes (or wherever) from now until the end of Thursday 19th December. Links:
