"So What!" as written by and Williams/wood/gravitt....
(Originally recorded by The Anti-Nowhere League)

So fucking what!

Well, I've been to Hastings and I've been to Brighton
I've been to Eastbourne too
So what, so what
And I've been here, I've been there
I've been every fucking where
So what, so what
So what, so what, you boring little cunt

Well, who cares, who cares what you do
Yeah, who cares, who cares about you, you, you, you, you

Well, I've fucked the queen, I've fucked Bach
I've even sucked an old man's cock
So what, so what
And I've fucked a sheep, I've fucked a goat
I rammed my cock right down its throat
So what, so what
So what, so what, you boring little fuck

Well, who cares, who cares what you do
And, who cares, who cares about you, you, you, you, you

And I've drunk that, I've drunk this
I've spewed up on a pint of piss
So what, so what
I've had scank, I've had speed
I've jacked up until I bleed
So what, so what
So what, so what, you boring little cunt

Well, who cares, who cares what you do
Yeah, who cares, who cares about you, you, you, you, you, you

A-hahaha!

Yeah!

I've had crabs, I've had lice
I've had the clap and that ain't nice
So what, so what
I've fucked this, I've fucked that
I've even fucked a school girl's twat
So what, so what
So what, so what, you boring little fuck

Well, who cares, who cares what you do
And, who cares, who cares about you, you, you, you, you, you

So fucking what!
Yeah

    General CommentAccording to one of their live albums, this song is about one of those people that claim to have every fucking thing under the sun, no matter how stupid it is.

    General CommentThis song was inspired by the overhearing of two drunken braggarts in a pub trying to one-up one another.

    General CommentSo What?" is a song written by the British punk band the Anti-Nowhere League. The song first appeared as the B-side of the band's debut 7" single "Streets of London", in 1981.

    The song was written, according to the band, after sitting in a pub one night and hearing two men try to out do each other with stories of past experiences. The song is therefore a retort to people who tell embellished stories to make themselves appear better than the other person they are in conversation with.

    The obscene lyrical content of the song caused the British police to seize all copies of the single from the band's distributors under the Obscene Publications Act and remove all copies from sale [1]. The word "fuck" appeared in the first line of the song. The song has subsequently been appended to various CD reissues of the We Are... The League album and has become somewhat of an anthem for the band. Lyrics in the song include references to bestiality (I fucked a sheep/I fucked a goat...) and acquiring Sexually Transmitted Diseases (I've had the crabs, I've had the lice/I've had the clap...).

    The song was famously covered by Metallica and released as a B-side to the "Sad But True" single and later included on the Garage Inc. album; it is also a bonus track on the Asian version of the Black Album. "So What?" would go on to become an in-concert standard for the band. James Hetfield, lead singer of Metallica, blew out his voice box while performing the song live in 1992.
