* ProtestSong: Most of his songs on ''TheNowShow''. He's usually funny about it, though. "Not Everybody Has To Imagine" is interesting, a skewering of Music/JohnLennon's "Imagine" from the opposite end of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism:

Mitch Benn is a British satirical songwriter, best known for his topical comedy songs on ''Radio/TheNowShow''. His favourite topics include James Blunt, Music/{{Coldplay}} and {{Twitter}} (where he had a feud with Creator/StephenFry, which was settled when Fry agreed to make him 'Viceroy of {{Facebook}}' in return for Benn giving up the quest to be 'King of Twitter'.) He is [[OopNorth Liverpudlian]]-[[UsefulNotes/{{Scotland}} Scottish]] and [[HornyVikings looks a bit like a Viking]]. He has released several albums, some solo and some as 'Mitch Benn and the Distractions'.

He's done two other radio shows: ''Mitch Benn's Crimes Against Music'' started out with him discussing various aspects of music and musicians with Robin Ince, before the third series became a sitcom about him and Ince going on tour. Either way, the plot was an excuse for him to play his songs and Ince to be rude about them. ''The Mitch Benn Music Show'' is simply him showcasing his favourite comedy records by others. He also made the ''Mitch Benn Specials'' in 2005, following on from the radio adaptation of his stage show ''Mitch Benn is the 37th [[Music/TheBeatles Beatle]]'', but looking at the influence of other musicians. The episodes were: "The [[Music/BobDylan Freewheelin']] Mitch Benn"; "Mitch Benn is [[Music:DavidBowie the Fat Pink Duke]]" and "Mitch Benn [[Music/ElvisPresley Has Left the Building]]".
