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...."
- While making this song, Murdoc called it "Little House on the Stink Fish", but after 2-D declared it a "terrible name", Murdoc decided it best to rename it.
