Referenced on Arie's website as a Cover version of the Jam's original.

original is by the jam. i believe its a reference to a school rugby team, but theres probably info on a fansite, google or wiki.

i have this on 7 inch and on countless jam cds scattered around.

hello hooray! what a nice day, for the eaton rifles! eaton rifles!

Eton Rifles was about a street fight with some posh nobs.

It was mentioned in NME in around 1999 that The Prodigy were going to do a cover version of 'Eton Rifles'. The cover was to be for the album 'Fire & Skill: The Songs of the Jam'. See/listen: -

Apart from the mention in that article in the NME there is no evidence that Liam ever started or finished writing that cover version.

Look who got an extra thanks in the Fire & Skill booklet,

Possibly more than just a rumour?

"Keith Flint"

I'm not saying Liam never said he was going to do 'Eton Rifles' for this album. I'm saying, did he do it? He may never have started it. He may have done some of it then scrapped it. He may have finished it and it's another unreleased track. We don't know.
