Ahh, Britpop. I loved you back in the day like a Southerner loves his cousin. Every once in a while, I'll throw down an old Blur track, or a song by Sleeper, but somehow they all pale in comparison to the epicness of the Manic Street Preachers.

The Manics have a pretty incredible backstory but it was the what-does-it-all-mean largeness of Everything Must Go that brought them to a wider audience. If you're willing to shell it out, the classic record has just been deservingly re-released with bonus material. This, along with Pulp's new Different Class are on my wish list.

A lyric line from The Song of the Day--"We don't talk about love we only want to get drunk"--could almost be the mantra of my generation.
