Looks like it's going to be a grim few months ahead, but we'll have to listen to something, so I suggest:

The Fall - Van Plague?

Mudhoney - Touch Me I'm Sick

Any other topical tunes?

>  Eve of Destruction  - Barry McGuire.

I just heard that for the first time last year and got instantly addicted! It’s timeless but also hilarious the way the rhyming starts off brilliantly including the shoehorning of “coagulating” into the lyrics, and gradually deteriorates to the point where “Alabama” is meant to rhyme with “Red China” . Which makes it even better

I think you might be right but it does sound like "eat", plus the "say grace" bit makes me think about saying grace before a meal...

The original tune was a demo; they were going to go back and finish it. The exec in charge of the studio liked it and released it to radio. The next day it was a massive hit. A bit of rock 'n' roll history.

I had a look at that, despite the lack of a link..... I had seen it before, but I enjoyed it again. I didn't detect any regret. Were you perhaps thinking of their appearance on The Tube? John Peel was given the chance to pick a band to appear on the show and he picked The Fall. Jools Holland didn't look to happy about it.
