No More Heroes was produced by Martin Rushent. The album consists of new material with three songs left over from the Rattus Norvegicus sessions "Something Better Change", "Bitching" and "Peasant in the Big Shitty". The album cover features a photo of a wreath placed on a coffin with the tails of several rats the Stranglers' trademark.
The brass plaque on the album cover was engraved by Steven Stapleton of Nurse with Wound. A further non-album single was released later that year: "5 Minutes". No More Heroes has been praised by retrospective The Boys In Blue - Hard Skin - Same Meat Different Gravy. Rude words and adult themes abound, with no punches pulled, from the blatant sexism of "Bring on the Nubiles" to the sarcastic attack on racism "I Feel Like a Wog" to the suicide of a friend "Dagenham Bring On The Nubiles - The Stranglers - No More Heroes.
Despite the increased virulence, the music is even better than on the debut, introducing pop stylings that would later become a more common aspect of the Stranglers' character", finishing the review with " No More Heroes is easily [the Stranglers'] best album.
