Anarchy In The U.K.

Anarchy In The U.K.

Track 3 on Megadeth’s 3rd studio album So Far, So Good… So What!, Anarchy In The UK is a cover of a Sex Pistols track, with slightly altered lyrics. It’s one of the few Megadeth covers we don’t really like. It’s a good rendition, but the Sex Pistols version was much more in-tune with our anger & relatable to us Brits, or at least this one.

Anarchy In The U.K. Lyrics

Right now
I am an Anti-Christ
And I am an anarchist
Don’t know what I want,
But I know how to get it
I want to destroy, possibly?

Cause I want to be Anarchy
No dog’s body

Anarchy for the U.K.
It’s coming sometime it maybe
I give a wrong time, stop a traffic light
Your future dream is a shopping spree

Cause I want to be Anarchy
In the city

Solo – Mustaine

Of many ways to get what you want
I use the best, I use the rest
I use the enemy
I use anarchy

Cause I want to be Anarchy
It’s the only way to be

Solo – Jones

Is this the M.P.L.A.?
Is this the U.D.A.?
Is this the I.R.A.?
I thought it was the U.K.
You’re just another country

Solo – Young

And other cunt-like tendencies
Cause I want to be Anarchy

Solo – Young

Cause I want to be Anarchy,
You know what I mean?

Solo – Young

Cause I want to be an Anarchist
Again I’m pissed, destroy!
