New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Declaring him "the original punk", Wartoad are paying tribute to Sir Cliff by releasing their cover version of his first major hit, "Move It", to coincide with the 60th anniversary of its original release. Having introduced rock n roll to the UK and becoming the first rock n roll track to top the charts, Cliff has paved the way for punk bands over the years to challenge convention and connect with an audience looking for new music with a new message.

Whilst many have seen Cliff as the ultra-saccharine side of pop, over 750,000 people have viewed Wartoad's tribute, turning the tide of opinion towards Cliff, despite the recent troubles the star has faced.
Though the connection between Cliff and punk may seem tenuous, Wartoad and punks around the world are flying the flag for Cliff as a champion of music regardless of genre, asking all music fans to reinstate Cliff as the king of UK rock n roll, and a defiant riposte to the BBC's treatment of the music legend.
