The name of a song from the eponymous album.
Final cut has several meanings. Often, final cut means the last editing before the director gets to see the film as a whole.
The song and album were named after a quotation from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.
At the moment when Caesar is being stabbed to death by Roman senators, he says the final cut was “the most unkindest cut of all.” Then he turns around to see who was the last one to hit him and says something even more famous: “Et tu, Brute?” surprised to see that even his close friend betrays him.
