When we marched a cry went up From Horse Guards to Millbank The papers patronised our anger Called us a throwback But when we chanted "tory scum" Our rage was well-informed We knew their game: greedy intent An ideological war Out out tory scum Out out tory scum Out out tory scum Tory scum tory scum Privatising education Selling hospitals Destroying jobs, and benefits For those who need them most Out out tory scum Out out tory scum Out out tory scum Tory scum tory scum Don't hate disabled, immigrants But pin the blame on your true foe Your enemy are tory scum And yellow-bellied sycophants Out out tory scum Out out tory scum Out out tory scum Tory scum tory scum

I don't miss my balls I don't miss my balls Oh so fragile stabbing pain I don't miss my balls I don't miss my dick I don't miss my dick What a pointless bundle of nerves I don't miss my dick I don't miss my chest I don't miss my chest Really boring breasts are more fun I don't miss my chest I don't miss the boy's club I don't miss the boy's club Sexist bullshit all the time I don't miss the boy's club I don't miss my voice I don't miss my voice Oh so hateful droning flatly I don't miss my voice I stand before you whole Stand before you whole Woman ain't a man missing bits Stand before you whole

When abortion’s still illegal in Northern Ireland When the wealth gap is still ever wider When we still don’t have equal pay When you still get bullied for being gay When sexist jokes are still let loose And irony’s used as an excuse When the Coalition try to take us back It’s time for a feminist counterattack We’ve just won battles Not the war Time for us to rise some more We’ve just won battles Not the war Time for us to rise When rape victims still get the blame When right-wing tabloids fan the flame When policemen commit sexual assault But are never found to be at fault When public services are cut And women’s shelters are out of luck When the Coalition try to take us back It’s time for a feminist counterattack We’ve just won battles Not the war Time for us to rise some more We’ve just won battles Not the war Time for us to rise So reclaim the night Slutwalk Keep up the fight Never balk Raise some funds Occupy Gonna be a feminist ’till I die Win the battles Then the war Time for us to rise some more Win the battles Then the war Time for us to rise Win the battles Then the war Time for us to rise some more Win the battles Then the war Time for us to rise

My body is not up for debate When your speech takes our freedom my friend Then we'll hit right back 'Cos what you say makes it okay for bigots to beat assault and maim for authorities to ignore our pain for medical malpractice to continue without shame My gender is not up for debate When one in three try suicide it's not theoretical bear in mind the impact of your hateful slurs your shit-filled piss stain fucking words My life is not up for debate Fuck your freedom of speech You unrepentent stinking shower of cunts

Had a troubled childhood Something on my mind Pain through teens, self-hatred grows I know my freakish means Now I have the power Standing on this stage Look at me, look at me Perform transgender rage Had a loving family Went to a good school Had it so damn lucky Abled body, abled mind too Middle-class white girl Standing on this stage Look at me, look at me Perform transgender rage This complex is performance Such privilege is a pain Even hard-offs have it easy In their own way This one is for all those Who can’t be on this stage Look at me, look at me Perform transgender rage This one is for all those Who can’t be on this stage Look at me, look at me Perform transgender rage Transgender rage Transgender rage Transgender rage Transgender rage

Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team What a sight for eyes to greet Flowers strewn across the street Some drunk bugger dug them up To sadly on the pavement flop Then down the road comes shining bright Orange lights to pierce the night A special rescue team arrives To set the flowerbed to rights Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team The workers are so very swift Their rapid gardening is a gift To those whose spirits gain a lift From flowers maintained not with thrift But on the route to my abode No streetlight shines upon the road The council says it costs too much Is it unsafe? Just a touch! Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team

As we began to sing our songs It’s quickly clear that someone’s wrong He shouts in safety from inside The corners of his rigid mind And physical corners, nightclub booth A sexist coward, sexist coward And so we holler back of course We stand our ground determined force But we’re to blame for our response We’re to blame, we’re to blame But we won’t back down Never back down We won’t back down Never back down Yeah, we won’t back down Never back down We won’t back down Never back down They cut out righteous anger short They took us aside for a talk Our attitude almost caused a fight Just shut up and do what’s right Pretend that nothing happened And the nice security men will look after you And so we argued back of course We stand our ground determined force But we’re to blame for our response We’re to blame, we’re to blame But we won’t back down Never back down We won’t back down Never back down Yeah, we won’t back down Never back down We won’t back down Never back down Yeah, we won’t back down Never back down We won’t back down Never back down Never back down Never back down

Holding kids for hours in the cold Facilitation of lawful protest Rubber bullet threats abound Facilitation of lawful protest Beating grannies Smashing cars Groping fannies Defending grass All for law and law for all Facilitation of lawful protest Facilitation of lawful protest Policeman doing a bailiff’s job Facilitation of lawful protest Dragging Christians from a church Facilitation of lawful protest Beating grannies Smashing cars Groping fannies Defending grass All for law and law for all Facilitation of lawful protest Facilitation of lawful protest

Mine is the body of fantasies, dreams Shemale pin-up, late night TV Mine is the body you hate to love Wanking alone, I warm your blood Get off my body, it’s mine and my own Get off my body, not yours to bone Get off my body, sick fantasy’s yours Get off my body, and I’ll get off yours Mine is the body of vomit and fear My existence a trap with you to ensnare This life I was given has tarnished me whole Am I now unsexed, unattractive to all? Get off my body, it’s mine and my own Get off my body, not yours to own Get off my body, sick fantasy’s yours Get off my body, and I’ll get off yours I mean, come on You’re a perverted arsehole A blinkered bigot Like I would want to fuck you anyway

about

Not Right Coventry, UK

We are: punk attitude, riot grrrl aesthetic, queer feminist rage, the politic of “people” before “profit”. We are the lead guitarist who doesn't solo, the trombonist playing percussion, the singer who just shouts. We are hatred, we are joy, we are noise for the sake of noise. We are Not Right. ... more
