The Angry Mob (4:46)

Cover of Yours Truly, Angry Mob

From Yours Truly, Angry Mob and 11 other releases

“The Angry Mob” is a song by English indie band Kaiser Chiefs and is the title track to their second album, Yours Truly, Angry Mob. The name “The Angry Mob” is also the name of the band’s fanclub and is possibly the inspiration for the band’s blog. The song was released in the UK as the third single from Yours Truly, Angry Mob on 20 August 2007. The song discusses the way in which the media encourage knee-jerk reactionary thinking, and the way society at large keeps people under control via the tabloids and 24-hour drinking culture.

    I was introduced to this song by a video of people dressed as Transformers and Harry Potter characters having a barbeque battle

    Every time I hear this song I worry people like being the angry mob--the song is obvious commentating that the mob TOO easily swayed, but yet the mob chant it is the main verse so it make you want to sing along--join the mob--it's very odd, almost like a trick. Haha KC made you into a sheep. ;)
