One of my favorite bands is Manic Street Preachers. They are literate, diverse in style, epic an a band that has put out quality rock and roll for 20 years.
Usually their singles come with a quotation printed on the inner sleeve, and usually those quotations offer something to ponder or learn.
Below are the quotes included in the various singles the band has put out from their recent Postcards From A Young Man album.
