Pirate Jet is the 16th track of the Gorillaz' 2010 album Plastic Beach.


Band member Murdoc Niccals stated the following about "Pirate Jet" in a track-by-track commentary:

"'Pirate Jet' takes the album out swinging, a finale with shuddering jazz hands: “Did you like the show? It was called PLANET EARTH". We’re finished and now everyone’s evolved into plastic. A new breed of human."

"But y’know, I want to clear this up. 'Plastic Beach'. It's not a green record. It's not a judgement on the world. It's just a picture. Plastic Beach: it's another place, another way of looking at the world. And this is its soundtrack...."

Its all good news now
Because we left the taps running
For a hundred years
So drink into the drink
Plastic cap drink
Drink with the purple
The people the plastic eating people
Still connected to the moment it began
