On the one hand they must be shitting themselves the Manics aren't having a two year gig break, on the other. Why? What were they ever good for? But then maybe it's a plot, The Enemy make everyone think their next album is shit by bringing out the most ripped off song on the disc?
And I'm not even an Enemy fan. I say this out of a kindness they don't even deserve for this steal and hope the press rips them to shreds (Which they won't as they need the traffic to hype...)

I don't think it's such a big deal - its not the most unique or original guitar line in the history of music. The problem I have with listening to that clip is that The Enemy are beyond shite. It's an absolute embarrassment that Jimbo invited them on stage to play one of the manics most signature tunes at an important moment in their recent resurgence.

...is the correct answer.

I thought (hoped) people would stop listening to this bunch of chancers before now. They're also one of a spate of beyond-average indie guitar bands who think that by merely existing they're going to "save" british music. Laughable.

I feel sorry for them, the first album was ok as a first attempt, but they seem to have run out of ideas pretty quickly.

That chip shop indie sound was dated 10 years ago. I can't believe anyone would listen to this out of choice.
