Rubber Bullets

Rubber Bullets by 10cc was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, June 23, 1973 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Like the Elvis Presley hit "Jailhouse Rock," this song is about a party that breaks out at the county jail. Elvis' song ends with everyone having a good time, but in 10cc's song, the party is kiboshed by riot police who use rubber bullets to quell the uprising, a more likely outcome. Some radio stations refused to play this because of the controversy over the British army using rubber bullets in its efforts to bring peace to troubled Northern Ireland. The band's protests that the song actually dealt with a riot in an American prison fell on deaf ears.
