‘GENERATION TERRORISTS’ by MANIC STREET PREACHERS – Released 10 February 1992

Welsh legends MANIC STREET PREACHERS released their debut album, a double one, twenty-five years ago – on 10 February 1992. I fell in love with the Manics for the reasons most of us of fell in love with them at the very start: they looked bloody ‘cool’, they ranted like newborn punks and, most important of all, they sounded anthemic & really big. But in my opinion (all opinions are subjective of course) GENERATION TERRORISTS would have been a 24 Karat Gold debut album as a single not a double one with the following tracklist:

Slash ‘n’ Burn / Motorcycle Emptiness / You Love Us / Little Baby Nothing / Stay Beautiful /
So Dead / Repeat UK / Spectators Of Suicide / Crucifix Kiss and Methadone Pretty.

Anyway Generation Terrorists overall was a hellish rock ‘n roll manifesto in sound
and content and the start of a brilliant career. Here we go back in history…

.
Fun to read: on the occasion of the album’s 20th birthday British music weekly NME claimed to have 20 reasons why you should love Generation Terrorists. Check them here
