Margaret Thatcher attracted such titles as Tramp the Dirt Down, in which Elvis Constello imagined Thatcher's end in 1983. Morrisey imaginging her on the Guillotine in 1988, and any number of unplayable insults and angry rants came from bands like the Clash, Pink Floyd and Crass. What else did the former British prime minister inspire?
