"Stutter Rap (No Sleep til Bedtime)" is a song by Morris Minor and the Majors, led by Tony Hawks. The song is a style parody of the Beastie Boys and the subtitle plays on their 1987 single "No Sleep till Brooklyn". The record sold 220,000 copies.
Hawks started out as a songwriter but was not successful, and instead became a comedian and writer. However, it was when he turned to comedy that he achieved a hit with "Stutter Rap (No Sleep Til Bedtime)", reaching No. 4 in the UK Singles Chart, No. 14 in Canada and No. 2 in Australia. Although written by Hawks, it was performed by him along with two others, as Morris Minor and the Majors. In the video for the song, John Deacon (of Queen) makes an appearance, wearing a blue wig and playing guitar. The video was featured on Australian TV programme Spicks and Specks on 12 September 2007.
The single also featured the song "Another Boring B-Side", whose chorus simply repeated the line: "Very very very very very very boring".
