    UPDATE:

    The Radio Dept call out Morrissey on politically charged single “Going Down Swinging” (listen) - Brooklyn Vegan

    Excerpt:

    The Radio Dept. have shared a new single, “Going Down Swinging.”

    ...Like usual, The Radio Department sing softly but carry a big stick, and the song contains the following verse:

    These church bells
    I love what they say
    Nazis should be dealt with like in Normandie
    Only inbreds join an alt right parade
    Someone please tell that to Morrissey



    Came across this today when pulling up Bowie’s Boys Keep Swinging. YouTube must have jumped in a “swinging” theme. Decided to give it a listen and discovered Moz reference in the lyrics.

    Radio Dept - Going Down Swinging


    Church bells are ringing today
    God is on the right side for once
    We will go down swinging you say
    Oh to die at the hands of a fascist dunce

    These church bells
    I love what they say
    Nazis should be dealt with like in Normandie
    Only inbreds join an alt right parade
    Someone please tell that to Morrissey

    Going down swinging now
    Going down swinging now
    Going down swinging now

    Church bells are ringing today
    God is on the right side for once
    We will go down swinging you say
    But I never fought anyone
    I just got beat up you see
    Can't give that pleasure to a nazi devotee

    Going down swinging now
    Going down swinging now
    Going down swinging now

    Do the right thing now
    When you're in that moment
    Do the right thing now
    In your heart you know it
    You're not fooling anyone
    You know this is for real
    We will go down swinging you see
    Oh to die at the hands of the fascist dogs
