Think of Renton’s rants in both films and you can sort of justify Iggy’s as a similar rant from another angle. Which is not to say it’s any good. The substance is still an old man complaining about he can no longer do destructive things to himself and other people without consequences, which runs directly against the cultural moment in which the song finds itself.
And we must not have music that goes against the current cultural norms of course. I'd have to say they timed this song quite well, almost like they did it on purpose.

Because his part kinda sucks; content and delivery.

Isn't this the basis of near all other Underworld tracks

Nah. It would feel even more wrong of Karl sang it. Banging drums with awkward lyrics layered on.

Re: Bells & Circles Ft. Iggy Pop
I like it.
First song in a long time that gave me that classic Underworld Dub/STITI vibes. I miss that driving beat/bass they were ace at.

I hope we get more!
