I have been having this nightmare for several weeks now and with some crap boy-band losing a member so he can go make crap rap records, it seems so much more real now.
There will come a time when a talentless boy-band will cover this song…or indeed any other Manics songs (There will be a clause somewhere hidden in legal jargon I bet you). You know the boy-bands I am talking about (Ones like Brother Beyond, Take That and the other one where all the members are called Dave)
If you do not think this is likely, may I point you to the awful cover of “Under the Bridge” by that girl band (Eternal? Possibly not. There was twins.)
This will mark the beginning of the end of times.
Don’t let the Boy – bands win
