She Is Suffering- Manic Street Preachers
There's probably loads I haven't thought of.
Or was that Lee Mavers and the La's debut?
but you get my drift.
wasn't he also one of the people against SMiLE? Twat.
brilliant song but for some reason the band hate it.
Not sure if he hates it as such but he stopped playing it live back in the mid-90s.
are two prime examples. Both seem to have largely disowned their early material, though Tom will occasionally roll out Invitation to the Blues or Tom Traubert's Blues. But don't think he'll ever play Martha again.
As for Scott, much as I like The Drift & Soused, they're never going to replace the likes of Montague Terrace or Copenhagen in my affections.
Shame since Short Change is by far my favourite Tom Waits album
And yes it's mine too.
From the beta band's eponymous debut album proper, which they famously disowned. I think they said it was the worst album of the year by anyone. RTB is such a fun tune and my fave song of theirs on any album... great lyrics too.
even the first track! uh...maybe
She Is Suffering is wrongly maligned.. its perhaps the best of their 'women' songs... less naive and teenagely clunky than Little Baby Nothing, a bit darker than Are Mothers Saints?
Agree with Martha by Waits too and Scott Walker's first four records.
I think they kind of disowned Revol as well for a while.
And the entire back catalogue of ATDI
which is a shame. Apparently they don't much care for it.
Death Goes to the Winner, Roses, Good Bye Blues, Decades... bummer.
but only because it was used so well in one of Michael Moore's films, I forget which one
is how that was played far too often in their set during live shows in the 2000's. A throwaway pop song with a short-shelf life, it sounds ridiculous next to almost all their other songs.
If only they had disliked it.
I was pretty sure they did dislike it and never played it live.
Gareth says he really hates the lyrics
or Morrissey at least - Barbarism Begins at Home
Fucking great tune - some of Marr's best guitar work & Rourke absolutely kills it. Got a bootleg of a Paris gig in 1985 where Morrissey witheringly announces to the crowd "Johnny wants to play 'Barbarism' again..."
Also I don't love this, but Johnny Marr and a lot of Smiths fans definitely hated their version of Golden Lights (it was part of the reason he left the band!).
Also there was a feature on the Kerrang website where Jamie Lenman spoke about each track on Racecar is Racecar Backwards, it seems he doesn't like Our Song or Parties Break Hearts, both of which I love.
Marr is quoted as saying "I didn't form a band to play Cilla Black covers."
Wish I could by dirty three. We dress up like snowmen by the wave pictures. No idea if the bands hate them, but they could have played them in one of the many times I've seen either of them live. Still I suppose, that's the trauma of being an indie bell end who loves obscure ep tracks.
Reznor isn't fond of it at all and has never payed it live.
They've written it off as a dud, but I think it's one of their best albums, and it only keeps getting better with each passing year. Ah well.
It is a good album, even sounds like it could be a greatest hits. It's arguably their post-Britpop phase where they sound a bit like Coldplay/Keane. Better than Postcards from a Young Man, Send Away the Tigers and Know Your Enemy.
