UK Metal Punk Group WEAK13 has received airtime on BBC 6 and other BBC shows with their third 2023 single release titled On The BBC; which is a satirical hit-piece poking fun at the organisation known as the BBC. The tune, which has an equally amusing music video racking over 100’000 plays on YouTube, features an out of the ordinary tap dancing solo provided by special guest Laura Stanyer from the band Naked Sunday.

In a recent interview, when asked what it means getting airtime on BBC radio with a tune that roasts it, WEAK13 singer & guitarist Nick J Townsend replied “It’s feasible that it’s the most catchiest and radio-friendly tune they’ve ever received so them not playing it or dismissing further support for intelligent original music would arguably be more inappropriate”.

Nick added “Hey, it’s written with love, I’m an artist being artistic. Do you really think they’d prefer a song called ‘I’m always played on the BBC’? This is punk 4D chess, it’s taylor-made for them and it’s pretty catchy so I’m actually giving them exactly what they want; let’s see if they’ll embrace the song even more. I can easily write a bigger tune”.
