Thou Shalt Always Kill

"Thou Shalt Always Kill" is a 2007 song by dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip.

The song comprises an electronic dance beat with the vocals taking the form of a rant at aspects of modern British culture. The pivotal message is to "think for yourselves" rather than to follow current trends or get caught up in hype. The artists claim that the title, and final line of the song, refer to 'killing' as performing excellently in the Hip Hop vernacular.

The song was named NME's track of the week in an April 2007 issue, despite the lyric "thou shalt not read NME" appearing in the song.

The track was released for digital download on 2 April 2007 followed by 7" vinyl on 16 April, reaching #30 in the UK charts. It entered and peaked at #34 in the official UK singles chart. The stand-alone download of Angles reached position #193 on the official UK Top 200.

The song was re-released in 2009 with additional vocals by Pos Plug Won (Posdnous) of De La Soul.

    William Burroughs (b. 1914)

    Whilst all the land was ringed with bristling arms
    And flames laid waste our world,
    All that was left me was a little garden
    And thou within it, my beloved, my comrade.

    Without, the frost, the blinding snow,
    The storm-wind’s moody madness—
    Within, the firelight’s ruddy glow,
    And childhood’s nest of gladness.
    The magic words shall hold thee fast:
    Thou shalt not heed the raving blast.
