"It's Not a Crime if No One Finds Out" is a track by the American alternative metal band Osmosis, which is off the outfit's forthcoming third EP, Pull on the Strings. The song was released as a lead single on June 4, 2013. The title is a reference to Nyaruko-san: Another Crawling Chaos.

Along with the entire extended play, it is the band's first song to feature Adam Guerilla on lead guitar since any discography from 1996 to 1998.

Style and themesEdit

On this song, Osmosis plays in a style that frontman Marco Simmer described as "Wacky Osmetal Rock". Basically speaking, it is a jocular avant-garde metal track with elements of art rock, progressive music, and death metal; the latter genres are particular evident during the bridge, in which "INCNOFO" gradually becomes heavier until the outro, in which it reverts back to how it started in the very beginning, but in reverse form.

Regarding the lyrics, Guerilla had this to say:

"This entire track's lyrics follow a very basic plot: a group of anime fans, made up of male and female teenagers, raid every store in the middle of the night and vandalize items not made by Japan because, apparently, they're all a bunch of Japanophiles; that is, the type who think they're better than everyone. That is the shortest and sweetest way I can put it! {laughs}"
