The Cribs - Bastards of Young (cover)

This song, originally by The Replacements, is a fantastic example of eighties riffs mixed with a disillusioned yet completely accurate view of the world. I will admit that the first thing which attracted to me to this song was the following words; 'the ones who love us best are the ones we'll lay to rest, and visit their graves on holidays at best, but the ones who love us least are the ones we'll die to please.' those lyrics cut to the heart of humanity, and the fact that they have a good tune behind them only highlight their poignancy.
