don't know if it's been mentioned elsewhere on here, but Noel G sings "You can pit your gold against my soul" in Revolution Song on his recent album - a vague reference that neatly ties in with some of the praise he's sent their way this year (although Google has just told me the track's actually an unused Oasis song from circa 1999)...

Well... When I was young, I always though a tiny little bit of Sunday Morning Call sounded like a tiny little part of Tollerate.

The "here's another Sunday morning-" vs. "the future teaches you to-". Not quite a rip-off, but definitely rings some bells to me. My simple elementary school student mind at that time simply concluded Oasis were inspired by the Manics.

One of the biggest names in modern Danish rock, Tim Christensen, is a fan.
Can't really hear it in any of his music though

Ian Rankin ‏@Beathhigh
@chrisdeerin @jk_rowling Manics the most literate, book-hungry band out there. Fact. I love them to bits.

As for Stuart Pearce....what do we reckon for him being at a speculative TIMTTMY gig in two years, bawling out 'I wish I had been born a girl and not this mess of a man'?! Anyone??

Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America,

And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.

Pearce has some history. There was a bit in John Lydon's book about him and a few other England internationals of the time attending the Pistols anniversary gigs in 96.

Two and half years since this thread's been updated. Must be some newer celebrities who are Manics fans, anyone from Love Island or owt?

Totally forgot I asked Richard Ayoade about this. When RA first joined Twitter, I noticed he followed @Manics and liked a bunch of Manics-related Tweets. Nicky has said Submarine (directed by RA) is one of his fave films and he included it in that Velvet Coalmine film fest.
