Culture Club scoort onder leiding van de extravagante zanger Boy George in de jaren 80 grote hits. Do You Really Want To Hurt Me is in 1982 de eerste hit voor de band en bereikt de tweede plaats in de Top 40. In 1983 scoort Culture Club een nummer 1-hit met Karma Chameleon. Verder scoren ze hoog met The War Song, Church Of The Poisoned Mind en Victims. In 1986 houdt de band het voor gezien en kampt de zanger met een drugsverslaving. Hij kickt af en scoort in 1987 een top 3-hit met de single Everything I Own. In 1999 komt de band weer bij elkaar. Hits worden er niet gescoord maar de fans worden op hun wenken bediend.

Songtekst

War, war is stupid and people are stupid
And love means nothing in some strange quarters
War, war is stupid and people are stupid
And I heard the banging of hearts and fingers, war

People feel the world with narrow confidence
Like a child at birth, a man with no defence
Whats mine is my own, I wont give it to you
No matter what you say, no matter what you do

Now were fighting in our hearts
Fighting in the street
Wont somebody help me?

War, war is stupid and people are stupid
And love means nothing in some strange quarters
War, war is stupid and people are stupid
And I heard the banging of hearts and fingers, war

Man is far behind in the search of something new
Like a Philistine, were burning witches too
This world of fate must be designed for you
It matters what you say, it matters what you do

Now were fighting in our hearts
Fighting in the street
Wont somebody help me?

War, war is stupid and people are stupid
And love means nothing in some strange quarters
War, war is stupid and people are stupid
And I heard the banging of hearts and fingers, war

War, war, war

After the bird has flown
Walked ten thousand miles back home
You cant do that to me, no, you cant do that to me
You cant do that to me, no, you cant do that to me, war, war

In this heart of mine, I'll find a place for you
For black or white, for grown-up children too

Now were fighting in our hearts
Fighting in the street
Wont somebody help me?

War, war is stupid and people are stupid
And love means nothing in some strange quarters
War, war is stupid and people are stupid
And I heard the banging of hearts and fingers

War, war is stupid and people are stupid
(No more war, say no more war)
And love means nothing in some strange quarters
(Say war)

War, war is stupid and people are stupid
(Senso hantai, Senso hantai)
And I heard the banging of hearts and fingers
(Say no more war, say no more war)

War, war is stupid and people are stupid
(No more war, say no more war )
And love means nothing in some strange quarters
(And no more war)

War, war is stupid and people are stupid
(And no more war)
And I heard the banging of hearts and fingers
(War, I said no more war)

War, war is stupid and people are stupid
(No more war)
And love means nothing
