But despite their confrontational, establishment-hating message, the Manic Street Preachers' most used word in their first three albums is "love"
That is so sweet and ironic at the same time.
But to think of it you kinda do talk about love when you say "we don't talk about love" (which appears in their fourth album, btw.). It's a little bit like "never say never". (which is even more paradoxical because you repeat "never" two times, but that's out of topic)

No surprise the Manics lyrics have always been my favourite English textbook. So much vocabulary.

Love alone is not enough!

I love diversity in Manics' lyrics. Sometimes silly sometimes sophisticated but always beautiful!
