The Pains of Being a Manic Street Preachers Fan
MSP FAN PAINS #78

When the band HATE one of your favourite songs of theirs and therefore refuse to ever play it live ever EVER

Well your a real real fan of MSP I myself think im a bit of a hypocrite because not listening to any post-Richey-album/songs (except JFPL) I feel really bad (because i love Nicky's lyrics too,just not as much) Can you please list me some 'must listen' songs from after everything must go? Im sorry if i ask too much of you! Anyways, amazing blog you have here,keep with the amazing work

Hello! Don’t worry about it haha it’s just a preference after all, but I would definitely strongly recommend listening to their newest album, Futurology, also This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours! These are just my personal choices as everybody is different, but some of my favourite Nicky songs include Nobody Loved You, Walk Me To The Bridge, The Masses Against The Classes, Ready For Drowning, Postcards From A Young Man, Send Away The Tigers, Autumnsong, Indian Summer, It’s Not War, and of course, Miss Europa Disco Dancer

I hope this helped!! x x

MSP FAN PAINS #77

when you have to cut off the end of your favorite lipstick with a kitchen knife because you last used it to write “stay beautiful” on a nasty public bathroom wall and add to the rest of the graffiti

Hi! What's your favourite MSP song?

That’s a ridiculously hard question! I have no bloody clue really as it depends on my mood, I can’t even pick my favourite album :(
I’ll give you a few though: Stay Beautiful, Motorcycle Emptiness, From Despair To Where, Yes, Faster, Die In The Summertime, Little Baby Nothing or Send Away The Tigers

Others not appreciating Nicky’s fashion sense

I mean really come on how could you not love this

I haven't got Tumblr but i absolutely love this blog - its basically everything i also love about the Manic Street Preachers too. This cheered me up so much when most people i know think they're too old to be relevant anymore - it makes me sad! Planning a Manics tattoo at the moment. I also love Misheard Manics Lyrics, do you run that as well? Anyway, thank you so much for all this its made me laugh so much in a good way :)

That’s lame that people think that… ._. Most people around me don’t even know them so… haha, I’m not sure if that’s better than people thinking they’re too old to be relevant anymore. But I’m glad this blog made you laugh and I’m glad you love it and everything else… and yes, me and Jo run both Misheard Manics Lyrics and this blog.

Stay beautiful dear anon!

When a friend wants to become a fan and you have the option of just giving them the National Treasures cds, but you give them a bunch of individual albums instead, because they can’t miss out on anything.
