Rubber Bullets by 10cc


"Rubber Bullets" is a song by 10cc from their debut self-titled album.

Written and sung by Kevin Godley, Lol Creme and Graham Gouldman and produced by 10cc, "Rubber Bullets" was the band's first number one single in the UK Singles Chart, spending one week at the top in June 1973. However it fared relatively poorly in the United States where it peaked at only No. 73. A tongue in cheek homage to the film "Jailhouse Rock" with a Beach Boys influence, the song attracted some controversy at the time because of the British Army's use of rubber bullets to quell rioting in Northern Ireland.
