Plastic Beach is the 13th song from the Gorillaz' 2010 album Plastic Beach.

Content

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

"It’s a special moment for fans of Gorillaz and The Clash. How did this come about? Well, I had commandeered Paul Simonon from the Good, The Bad And The Queen. And it made sense."

"Gorillaz were always influenced by The Clash. They were always my favourite band, I loved how they took the heart and soul of punk and reggae smeared it in London graffiti and paint and then sailed it round the world. I don’t think that’s a million miles from what Gorillaz do now."

Lyrics

To the dark dark seas
Comes the only whale
Watching ships go by
It's the daily routine round here

It's a casio on a plastic beach
It's a casio on a plastic beach
It's styrofoam deep sea landfill
It's styrofoam deep sea landfill
It's automated computer speak
It's automated computer speak
It's a casio on a plastic beach
It's a casio

Did they haul you out
On a really hot day
When the call got made
You had gone away from us

It's a casio on a plastic beach
It's a casio on a plastic beach
It's styrofoam deep sea landfill
It's styrofoam deep sea landfill
It's automated computer speak
It's automated computer speak
It's a casio on a plastic beach
It's a casio

Plastico, plastico, plastico where the green green grows
Plastico, plastico, plastico
Plastico, plastico, plastico where the green green grows
Plastico, plastico, plastico

It's a casio on a plastic beach
It's a casio on a plastic beach
It's styrofoam deep sea landfill
It's styrofoam deep sea landfill
It's automated computer speak
It's automated computer speak
It's a casio on a plastic beach
It's a casio

Plastico, plastico, plastico where the green green grows
Plastico, plastico, plastico
Plastico, plastico, plastico where the green green grows
Plastico, plastico, plastico
