My dad's bigger than your dad

You've got to love this cheeky cover of 'Straight To Hell' from Lily Allen.

The way I see it, she's seen MIA smash it worldwide with a brilliant lift from The Clash and some very cool percussive sound design. And, provocatively, decided to point out that it's not far short of a cover version.

Oh, and roped in her family friends. Which, when your old man was best pals with Joe Strummer can go a long way. Listen out for Mick Jones on backing vocals.

Lily Allen - Straight To Hell

Make sure you buy the Warchild record.
