"Funeral Pyre" is The Jam's thirteenth single released on 6 June 1981. Backed by the B-side "Disguises", a cover of a Who track, it reached #4 in the UK Singles chart.
The song begins as a studio jam between drummer Rick Buckler and bassist Bruce Foxton, with Paul Weller's contribution coming later.
The song does not appear on any of the band's studio albums. In the U.S., it appeared on the five-track EP The Jam (Polydor PX-1-503), which peaked at #176 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
