Gorillaz – Clint Eastwood (Leaping Ahead #358)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #358: 161223

[Favourite noughties song (12)]

Released as the first single from the Goillaz’ self-titled debut album in March 2001, the song is named after the actor of the same name due to its similarity to the theme music of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

The verses are rapped by Del the Funky Homosapien, portrayed as a blue phantom in the video, while the chorus is sung by 2D (voiced by Damon Albarn). It peaked at number four on the UK Singles Chart and number 57 on the US Billboard Hot 100
