Oh, the bastards. Thought they'd have given Nobody Loved You a go for the same reason they gave Further Away. I just hope that they decide to sling Suicide Alley, New Art Riot, PCP and Further Away in a few sets on the next UK tour.

How many times is listening to All is Vanity considered acceptable? How about 14 in a row?
(Also, that's not the right order, is it?)

Just want to express my love for Mausoleum. It was my least favourite track off THB for a while, but holy fuck, it's stunning, isn't it? Especially the US mix (as much as I hate to admit it).

I was the same. Thought it was a bit meh at first. Then I just loved it suddenly. I'd rank it higher than the likes of 4st 7lb and Of Walking Abortion.

I've been meaning to ask this for the past 12 years. Well, today is the day.

Why does JDB not use the proper lyrics when singing the final chorus of Masses Against The Classes live?

There are other examples of him altering lines live (Faster being an obvious example) but this is what I am focusing all of my question on. Obviously they're not the only thing left to believe in but they could be forgiven for still believing that at the Millennium gig.

Can't say I've actually noticed!

Aye, this irritates me a bit too. It comes across as sounding a bit smug; which doesn't really befit the quality of the song. I don't know, I guess the original line makes more sense.

Although there's a job. Sit in front of the stage and shout out lyrics through a megaphone when James gives you the "LINE!" look.

There's quite a few. The one that annoys me is when he leaves out the Lennon line in Motown Junk. OK, he probably feels a bit silly shouting that out now he's older, but it's the lyric so stick to it pls!
