"Help the Bike Song storm the charts
Back in 2009, Newsnet featured 'The Bike Song' by a Nottingham-based band called The Grave Architects. There's now a national 'Storm the Charts' campaign to make the song the official UK Number 1! The song encourages listeners to "put [their] helmets on", so we got in touch with the band to make sure they weren't a cleverly disguised pro-helmet compulsion campaign. They said: "The Grave Architects respect the rights of the individual to decide if they wish to wear a helmet or not. The Grave Architects also reserve the right to look SEXY IN THEIR HELMETS at all times." We can't argue with that, and having a song about bikes in the Top 40 will help make cycling more mainstream, so if you like the video, please buy the MP3 version - you'll get a free download of their album too."
But I think that it's a bit dreary. Sorry, CTC and sorry Grave Architects.
