10 Songs About Criminals/Crimes

All the songs here reference infamous murderers and/or their crimes. Links are provided for each of the songs. I also limited these to 1 song per crime/criminal. There is no particular order to this list. I just find our social and media fascination with these types of people to be compelling.

*I am in no way glorifying or condoning these crimes.*

So freaking tired lol so have an incomplete sketch dump on a Pirate AU hurrhurrhurr

In which Boston and Mael are co-captains, Lucio is the cook, Mitch snuck on board their ship because he smelled Lucy cooking pizza and wanted to steal one but OOPS, the ship set sailed while Deluxe is the navy officer captain thing trying to track down and arrest Boss&Minion or something haha lol idk.

Might finish that gun point showdown between Mael and Deluxe some time. Or not. So tired today for some reason I wonder why…?

In which Mael has learnt what to do whenever Boss-donno enters ‘The Zone’. 

1) Pull out the most comfortable chair he can find.

2) Set out the hot chocolate.

3) Clear the place.

4) Scarper.
