Something by Led Zeppelin?

There was a band in Basingstoke called Strontium Dog (presumably after 2000AD).

The Sisters Of Mercy's "Detonation Boulevard" mentions gasoline and "Lucretia, My reflection" mentions methedrine.
Never tell me the odds.

Or a whole genre - Heavy Metal

I'm surprised no-one mentioned "Gold" by Spandau Ballet :)

..or perhaps I'm not, really.

Whereas Gold by the Sugarcubes is another matter entirely.

And I'll just mention Vitamin C by Can.

I think this has been posted somewhere on this forum before, anyway:

YouTube - The World of Chemistry

Not quite in the spirit of the thread (the video is about chemistry but the music isn't), but well worth a look!

Simian - 'Chemistry is What We Are'

Shriekback - 'The Reptiles & I':

"Chromium, radium, nickel, iridium,
Gold and actinium, arsenic, plutonium,
Neon, molybdenum, zinc, iodine
Braving the elements
The reptiles and I..."
Bingo! That's what I am, a saviour.
A sort of cocky version of Jesus.
