The Prodigy – Firestarter

Firestarter” is a song by the English band The Prodigy, released on 19 March 1996. It was the first single from their third album The Fat of the Land, and their tenth single. It was also the group’s first number-one single on the UK Singles Chart, staying on top for three weeks. It was The Prodigy’s first big national and international hit, also reaching number one in Finland and Norway. It featured Flint’s punky vocals which showcased him as the group’s frontman. The title and lyrics were subject of controversy in the UK because of their violent nature. The music video further boosted these controversies. The songwriting credits—among Liam Howlett and Keith Flint—include Kim Deal of alt-rock group The Breeders. The looped wah-wah guitar riff in “Firestarter” was sampled from The Breeders’ track “S.O.S.” from the album Last Splash. Because of the use of a sample from a 1984 single “Close (to the Edit)” songwriting credits also list Art of Noise’s then-members: Anne Dudley, Trevor Horn, J.J. Jeczalik, Gary Langan and Paul Morley. The “Empirion Mix,” which does not include these samples, is credited solely to Howlett and Flint. In October 2011, NME placed it at number 52 on its list “150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years”.
The song was also featured in the Summer Olympic opening ceremony of 2012 representing music of the 1990′s. Wikipedia®

Songwriters: Flint, Keith Charles / Deal, Kim / Jeczalik, Jonathan Edward Stephen / Langan, Gary Michael / Howlett, Liam /
Dudley, Anne Jennifer / Morley, Paul Robert / Horn, Trevor Charles.

I’m the trouble starter, fuckin’ instigator.
I’m the fear addicted, danger illustrated.

I’m a firestarter, terrific firestarter.
You’re the firestarter, twisted firestarter.
I’m a firestarter, terrific firestarter.

I’m the bitch you hated, filth infatuated.
Yeah. I’m the pain you tasted, fell intoxicated.

I’m a firestarter, terrific firestarter.
You’re the firestarter, twisted firestarter.

I’m the self inflicted, mind detonator.
Yeah. I’m the one infected, twisted animator.

I’m a firestarter, terrific firestarter.
You’re the firestarter, twisted firestarter.
I’m a firestarter, terrific firestarter… starter… starter…
Starter…
