It’s almost time to welcome back ‘The Boss’.

No, we’re not talking about a new Bruce Springsteen album, Ricky Gervais’ iconic comedy character David Brent is returning for new movie Life on the Road.

Brent was the cringe-worthy boss from hell in two series and one Christmas special of The Office, and his aspirations to become a rock star played out in the show and numerous music videos. These musical ambitions take hold in Life on the Road as Brent makes one last attempt to hit it big as a recording artist.

With Life on the Road on the horizon, what better time than now to look back at the very best of Brent. Do you agree with our number one pick?

Recorded for Comic Relief with Doc Brown, Brent single-handedly managed to ease racial and social tensions and bring harmony to the UK through one charity single. Okay, it didn’t quite pan out that way but he gave it his best shot!
