Town Called Malice

Town Called Malice by The Jam was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, February 13, 1982 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The title of Nevil Shute's A Town Like Alice inspired the title, but the inspiration for the song came from Paul Weller's friend Dave Waller by means of describing urban life. The song is about unemployment in a working town and Paul Weller confessed, "It could have been written about any suburban town, but it was in fact written about my hometown of Woking." The Walking Dead Season 7 third episode starts with a montage of the Saviors' Sanctuary soundtracked by this song.
