With this song, the band Skrewdriver made themselves loudly heard in the punk music world in 1977. Many young people and adolescents identified themselves with this line of text during a time of prevailing dreariness, which was also characterized by increasing social and political tensions. Skrewdriver followed (like many others) the call of the emerging British punk movement with the "Do It Yourself" philosophy. They performed with the Sex Pistols, opened shows for The Damned, Motörhead, Billy Idols Generation X, Boomtown Rats or also for Siouxie & The Banshees and were on the verge of a successful music career, but riots at an important concert in London suddenly destroyed them Dreams of the ambitious musician.
