Description

The official video for 'White Lines' by Duran Duran. 

"White Lines (Don't Don't Do It)" is a hip-hop-funk song by Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel, released as a 12" in 1983 on Sugar Hill Records. The song, which warns against the dangers of cocaine, addiction, and drug smuggling, is one of Melle Mel's signature tracks. The bassline is sampled from a performance of the Sugar Hill house band (featuring bassist Doug Wimbish) covering "Cavern", a single by post-punk band Liquid Liquid.

A 1995 cover version of "White Lines," featuring performances from Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel, was released as the second single from the Duran Duran covers album Thank You. The single reached No. 17 on the UK Singles Chart, No. 5 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Songs chart, No. 20 on the Australia and No. 31 in New Zealand. The band continued to perform the song as a regular part of their live set into the 2000s.
