Black box recorder england made me 1998 full album

England Made Me is the debut album by Black Box Recorder, whose members include Luke Haines, Sarah Nixey and John Moore, released in July 1998 via Chrysalis Records.


The chorus of the song Child Psychology featured a highly controversial line, "Life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it". This led to the song being banned on UK radio and MTV. However, the sardonic nature of the song also gained praise from critics, with one calling it 'refreshingly blunt'. The single was released in the US shortly after the Columbine massacre, this led to the line 'Kill Yourself' being played backwards on the US release.
