Propane Nightmares (5:12)

Cover of In Silico

From In Silico and 18 other releases

“Propane Nightmares” is the second single from Australian drum and bass band Pendulum’s second album In Silico. It incorporates elements of the song “Million Miles From Home” by German techno band Dune.The song has been remixed by popular artist Celldweller and Australian electropop group Van She. It has received significant airplay on BBC Radio 1, being played frequently by DJ Zane Lowe.

The song was released exclusively for download on 12 April 2008 in Australia and New Zealand, where Pendulum were on tour at the time. It was later released globally for download on 21 April, and on physical formats on 28 April. The song reached number sixteen in the UK Singles Chart on 27 April based on downloads alone, and on 4 May the song peaked at number nine, making it Pendulum’s biggest UK hit to date. It was also the official theme song of WWE Cyber Sunday 2008 as well as being used as background music for the official video highlights of the 2008 Belgian Grand Prix. It is also used as the runout song for Rotherham United football team.

“Propane Nightmares” has received mixed reviews from music critics, mostly as a result of the change in style compared to older tracks produced by Pendulum. Some reviewers praised the new direction that the band had taken, for example Gerard McGarry wrote, in an article for Unreality Music, that Pendulum “have created an epic song that - for our money - fuses their penchant for dance and rock music beautifully”.

Somethings tearing me down and down
And I cant help but feel its coming from you
Shes a gunshot bride with a trigger cries
I just wonder what weve gotten ourselves into
