Mis-Shapes (3:46)

Cover of Different Class

From Different Class and 29 other releases

“Mis-Shapes” is a single from Sheffield band Pulp. Taken from the number one album Different Class, it was released as a double-A sided single with “Sorted For E’s and Wizz”, and reached number two in the U.K. charts.

It was Pulp’s second successive number two hit in the summer of 1995. It functions as a call to arms for those who would “like to go to town but we can’t risk it” for fear of getting beaten up. Singer Jarvis Cocker’s solution in the lyrics is that “we won’t use tanks, we won’t use bombs, we’ll use the one thing we’ve got more of - that’s our minds!”

Mis-shapes, mistakes, misfits
Raised on a diet of broken biscuits, oh
We don't look the same as you
And we don't do the things you do
