"Putain de camion" (English: "Fucking Truck" or "Damn Truck") is a French song written by the French singer Renaud and released in June 1986.[1]

History[edit]

Renaud dedicated the song to his friend and fellow actor Coluche who died on 19 June 1986 in a motorbike accident with a truck between Cannes and Opio. Coluche was also the godfather of Renaud's daughter Lolita Séchan.

The song was released as single, but in 1988 Renaud named his next album after the song.[2]
