"We're All Going To Die" is a song by Scottish singer-songwriter Malcolm Middleton, and the fourth single released from A Brighter Beat. The song was released on 10 December and more widely on 17 December 2007. A limited-edition seven-inch record was also released at a later date.
Championed by Colin Murray and other BBC Radio 1 DJs, there was a campaign to make the song the Christmas number-one in the UK singles chart. The song was originally given odds of 1000/1 to reach the top spot by bookmakers William Hill, the longest odds they have ever given. The odds were later cut to 9/1, but in the event the song reached only number 31.
Regarding the song, Middleton notes that the song has "nothing whatsoever" to do with Christmas and that it is about "general life worries."
