Some people might like to get a train to work, Or drive in in a beamer or a merc. Some guys like to travel in by bus, But I can't be bothered with the fuss today, I'm gonna take my bike, 'cause once again the tube's on strike. The greedy bastards want extra pay, For sitting on their arse all day, Even though they earn 30k, So I'm standing here in the pouring rain Where the fuck's my fucking train? London Underground! They're all lazy fucking useless cunts, London Underground! They're all greedy cunts, I wanna shoot them all with a rifle!
London Underground, a song by Amateur Transplants on Spotify
Everyone at school knew the lyrics word for word, and most us probably still do. When I listened to it again before emailing for an interview, I found myself gleefully singing the crude lyrics. I was rather surprised that they were still an act. No doubt the song is genius and a staple of our generation along with things like Happy Tree Friends. But as a kid, I always thought it was a bloke messing around in a garage making this song. But I was hugely wrong, Adam is a successful comedian whose legacy extends far beyond the song. Adam is a former Junior Doctor turned writer and comedian.
