"To Hell With Poverty" / "Capital (It Fails Us Now)" - Gang of Four (1981)

"Gang of Four wasn't as a brutal as some of their contemporaries, but the cheeky approach to their art didn't leave listeners with any lesser sense of meaning. This hyper-stylized single cover for 'To Hell With Poverty' is an excellent example of this; it's at once critical and accessible."
