"Burning Down the House" is a 1983 song by Talking Heads, from their album Speaking in Tongues. It became one of their more popular songs, reaching #9 on the US Charts in the year of its release. Chris Frantz thought of the titular chorus after seeing a Parliament-Funkadelic show where the crowd chanted "Burn down the house."
