    "Inspired by" but doesn't mention it. Will the OP censor let it through?

    "Money mad" by London Posse. Among the shout-outs to various, mostly Zone 2, colleagues, they do mention the "Stonebridge Crew".

    You mentioned Wapping. I listened to this song the other day, hoping to hear mention of Dagenham or Barking, but couldn't make it out.

    I should have JFGI'd, since it mentions both.

    Well done to you for pointing it out. :thumbs:

    'There's a lot of nice looking people in my area; Walthamstow is a bit like Mos Eisley. It's a lot more like Mos Eisley than Kentish Town is; that place is like the fucking Death Star!'

    Many, many years ago, I had a song called "Acton Men"

    "We're Acton men, we read 2000AD, we drink lots of lager and we hate yuppies
    We drive 1600E Ford Cortinas, we play pinball and Fender guitars"

    I have grown up since then and now drink lots of ale.

    don't think either qualifies as London on most counts (they are both outside the GLA area)

    If Rotherhithe is outside zone 2 - which seems reasonable to me - then it gets a mention in Elvis Costello's song New Amsterdam
