Ranking The Manics Songs – Generation Terrorists!

terror

Here we go again. You’ve read me harp on about the band long enough on the blog. But it’s still. Not. Sinking. In. My beautiful subscribers – it’s down to you to make the band big – bigger. Click the links. Buy the albums. Tell your friends. Lets Make Music Great Again! The more attention bands like this get, then the more bands like this will surface and the charts with be changed forever! Or more likely, none of that will happen. Still, give them a shot – you might like them. Probably not.

I’ve listed my favourite songs by them. I’ve reviewed their albums. I’ve been going through every effing song they’ve ever made and dedicating individual posts to those. I post my favourite lyrics by them most Mondays. As I look out the window at the uncharacteristically blue Belfast sky on the 15th of July 2019, I wonder what other scrapings are left at the bottom of the barrel. And it comes to me – ranking each song from each album. It’s just pointless and clickable enough to make for a five minute read on the shitter, and a frothy response in the comments. Please do both.

Below I present my ranking of the songs of Generation Terrorists. It’s not definitive, but shows my general feelings about the thing. There’s only one song here I don’t like – Repeat USA – and it’s barely a song anyway. I’m going to do the same for each album, at least until I get bored. Make sure to scroll to the bottom for a bonus list! Blisstus!

  1. Condemned To Rock And Roll
  2. Motorcycle Emptiness
  3. Little Baby Nothing
  4. You Love Us
