Leaders Not Followers is an EP album by the British band Napalm Death, featuring covers from various punk and metal bands. The EP has been re-issued by Secret Records on limited edition red vinyl on the occasion of Record Store Day 2013 and has also been included on their CD re-issue of Enemy of the Music Business as bonus tracks.[3]

Track listing[edit]

No. Title Original artist Length
1. "Politicians" Raw Power 1:45
2. "Incinerator" Slaughter 3:21
3. "Demonic Possession" Pentagram 3:13
4. "Maggots in Your Coffin" Repulsion 1:36
5. "Back from the Dead" Death 2:36
6. "Nazi Punks Fuck Off" Dead Kennedys 6:40


Track number 3 is misspelled on the back as "Demoniac Possesion". This song is a cover of the Chilean thrash metal band Pentagram. Not to be confused with the American doom metal band Pentagram.

"Nazi Punks Fuck Off" is 1 minute and 13 seconds long. At the end of the song, there is a long silence block from 1:14 to 6:10. At 6:11 a soundbite comes fading in of a fan presenting himself and then translating his own speech into Welsh. This kind of ghost track, with some slight changes, pops out in other two Napalm Death albums so far, Order of the Leech and Enemy of the Music Business.
