Declaration 1984-1985. Sixty Eight Guns was their battle cry, a call to arms against the establishment. This attitude was fomented in their hometown of Rhyl, North Wales, where they grew up in bleak economic times and fought naysayers who saw no need for another rabble-rousing rock band. The martial imagery reflects their push against this prevailing attitude. It was published in 1973 but set in 1968, which is why there are 68 guns in the song title. It was about young people at that difficult age where you're too cool for school, but not wise enough or eligible enough for adult life, Peters said in a Songfacts interview. So, it's about people like that like I was, once. This song is by The Alarm and appearsSixty Eight Guns.
