Bang Bang You're Dead (3:31)

Cover of Waterloo To Anywhere

From Waterloo To Anywhere and 29 other releases

“Bang Bang You’re Dead” is a song by the band Dirty Pretty Things. It was released as a single on April 24, 2006 and was the first to be released from the band’s debut album Waterloo to Anywhere. It proved very successful, charting at #5 on the UK Singles Chart (see 2006 in British music). In 2006, it was used as the theme tune to the BBC series Sorted.

Early rumours about the song claimed it was about Pete Doherty, citing the lyrics; ‘I gave you the midas touch, you turned round and scratched out my heart’ as evidence. Carl Barat later denied this in NME magazine.
