"Fight From The Inside" as written by and Roger Meddows Taylor....
Hey you boy, hey you
Hey you boy, think that you know what you're doing
You think you're gonna set things to rights
You're just another picture on a teenage wall
You're just another sucker ready for a fall

You gotta fight from the inside
Attack from the rear
Fight from the inside
You can't win with your hands tied
Fight from the inside
Ooh, ooh, aah
Fight from the inside
Right down the line

Hey you boy, hey you
Hey you boy, think that you know what you're doing
You think that out in the streets is all true
You're just another, money-spinner tool
You're just another, fool

You gotta fight from the inside
Attack from the rear
Fight from the inside
You can't win with your hands tied
Fight from the inside
Ooh, ooh, aah
Fight from the inside
Right down the line
Right down the line
Right down the line

    General CommentThis is (one) of my favorite tracks on News of the World. Roger kind of steals the show with this one.

    If this song wasn't in the 70s it would be a blow to Boy Bands, seeing how they're just some coroprate gimmick. What's this? a 70s band was a corporate gimmick as well? What was their name? KISS!

    Yes, i do believe that this song is about kiss. It al lmakes sense: "You're just another money-spinner tool" "Another picture on a Teenage wall". Queen was all against corporate shams and stuff, and all about individuality. Just look at some of the stuff they made: Their musical "We Will Rock You" is exactly about that, so is the Video game "The Eye" (which i highly doubt even existed). So if this isn't about Kiss, then i don't know what it's about.

    General CommentWhen the "News Of The World" album came out I was only 16, and I took this with us on family vacation. My sister and I loved cruising along the beach blasting this song and looking at peoples reactions. This is my favorite Taylor song, and still has the same power it had the day it was released. Queen rules the rock world.

    General CommentThis song should be listen to by todays generation. Where I live, all the kids I know are either chavs who listen to Hip-Hop or emos/metalheads who listen alternative rock and emo bands like Fall Out Boy. While me I listen to hard rock like Queen, Led Zeppelin and Slade and also Progressive Rock (with bands like Genesis and Pink Floyd). So I listen to different music to what my friends like and don't want to listen to modern rock, which most of it's crap to me. Too whiney:)

    General CommentThis song is about not giving in to societal pressure to become "just another picture on a teenage wall" and to conform. You have to fight the urge to cover your real self with the mask of "fitting in." And that fight is on the inside. If you want to be able to be yourself, "You gotta Fight from the inside."

    General CommentI think erasmus is completely wrong. There is a theme in this song and in other Queen songs about "if you can't beat em join em" and "playing the game." If you aren't part of society you can't fix things. Being some street punk isn't going to help anyone but if you are in a position of influence and power you can help.

    General Commenttoo true, one of the best roger songs, this and sheer heart attack from the same album, he did the instruments on both songs. What its about is just nonsense to me, about not giving into pressure and stuff
