When you’re this numb news don’t register
Oh no no, you didn’t think that the “so bad it’s good” songs disappeared after the Generation Terrorists era ended did you? Oh my how you were wrong. Well, to be frank Symphony of Tourette is one of the very few of those types of songs after the said Generation Terrorists era but it’s still a bastion of utter hilarity.
I mean, really? Hard-rocking chugga-chugga guitars and screamy James with such an immortal chorus as “‘children can be cruel’ she said/so I smashed her in the fucking head/’sorry dear, that’s the nature of Tourette'”. Symphony of Tourette sounds so preposterously stupid. It’s a subject matter that’s very hard to make anything serious about without it slipping to farce and the lyrics just send it straight to daftville. The extremely hard-rocking (by Manics standards) composition just gives it more of a ridiculous DARKER AND EDGIER vibe.
I assume many loath. Me, I giggle.
