From their 1986 album, "Please". This is a song I could relate to while living in a suburb not without its rough edges,including pit bulls going about, the odd car-bomb going off in the middle of the night, people who drove cars too fast in school zones, and a general bit of increaed surliness and defensivness in people.
Californian sububria--the place of escape and peace in the 60's and 70's--became for many like me a place to be weary of staying in.
Of course, there were always good people and humor here and there, and there stil are, but it seemed at my particular patch of "the good life" like a good time to get out of metropolitan California. This song brings it back, even with the more docile English suburbs represented as well here.
"The song's primary inspiration is the 1984 Penelope Spheeris film Suburbia, and its depiction of violence and squalor in the suburbs of Los Angeles; in addition, the tension of the Brixton riots of 1981 and of 1985 hanging in recent memory led Neil Tennant of the duo to thinking about the boredom of suburbia and the underlying tension among disaffected youth that sparked off the riots at the least provocation.
"The various versions of the song are punctuated by sounds of suburban violence: rioting noises and smashing glass, as well as snarling dogs on the re-recorded single version (extended even further on the music video), which were derived from scenes in Suburbia."
