Enjoy our latest video for our new single, “Stephen Hawking Sings Monty Python… Galaxy Song” which is available as a digital download from 13 April, and on limited edition 7” vinyl on Record Store Day 2015.

The song, which is the title track to “Monty Python – The Meaning of Live”, was originally written…


  1. A man with a degenerative disease that no one ever, ever survives;
    Hawking lived one thousand fucking days beyond what any doctor could prescribe!
    The fucking robot was apparently an immortal black magician. I loved my soldier grandpa, why'd he die?
    You cannot convince me, with millions and billions and gorillions, that Hawking was not a shill. Just because he was disabled has no bearing on my opinion; if you can't see the NWO then you are blind.
    If you're offended, kindly go penetrate your own holes. Fuck you, and fuck the Hawking clone.

  2. There is an error in the version of the song that Hawking repeated. The error is not in Idol's original version of the song, but is in version Idol sang closer to the time Hawking sang it.
    The Sun is moving at 40,000 miles an hour, not 400,000 miles an hour in an outer spiral arm of the Milky Way. You can check this two ways.:
    1) In the previous line, he states that the sun (and you and me) are moving at a million miles a day. 1 million divided by (24 hours per day) = 41,666 miles/hour so 40,000 is a close round-off.
    2) From the next stanza, the Galaxy is 100,000 light years side to side. that is 5.8786254 x 10^17 miles. Multiply that by Pi to get the circumference of the galaxy .
    Then divide by 200 million(we go round every 200 Million years) and divide that result by 365 (days per year) and you will get an answer close to the million miles per day.

  3. This made me drop a tear. The whole python montage, made me realise, that there will be a time, with no pythons being alive. We all remember Graham Chapman, who died of lung cancer, quite early in 1980, and Terry Jones, who has been diagnosed with demensia. Amazing to think, that from a little show from the sixties, recorded onto film, they now still make content, recorded in digital 4k, fifty years later. Rest in piece, big cheese, even though you never found the fillings.
