Unionists are calling for a ban
Yeah, remember the last time last month
But that ban was overturned. What’s it about this time?
An Irish rebel song commemorating the IRA hunger strikers
Why are the Unionists interested in a rebel song?
Because the Roll Of Honour celebrates the lives of 10 republicans who died at the Maze Prison. It now sits 29th in the UK Top 40 Singles chart
If it gets into the Top 20 it will be played on the BBC
Make it happen. Download, sing-along, repeat.
A BBC source: “We believe it would be wrong to ban the song outright as free speech is an important principle and a ban would only give it more publicity.”

Update:The BBC has angered unionists in Northern Ireland. Radio 1 presenter Jameela Jamil played the instrumental intro and the first two lines of the song.
