Start! by The Jam was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, September 6, 1980 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Paul Weller got the idea for this song from reading George Orwell's book Homage To Catatonia, which is set in the Spanish Civil War. The Jam wanted this to be the first single from the album, but their record company wanted something else. They relented and the band were proved right when it topped the UK chart. This was featured in the 2000 film On The Edge.
