REWIND: Super Furry Animals - 'The Man Don't Give a Fuck'

After returning from a five year hiatus for some gigs last year, Welsh indie legends Super Furry Animals surprised everyone with a new single recently, their first in seven years. Sadly for me, 'Bing Bong' turned out to be a disappointing return, lacking the sort of magic that made them a great band. Such magic can instead be found on this terrific non-album single that turns 20 this year. Released in December 1996, 'The Man Don't Give A Fuck' claimed to feature the word "fuck" more than any other song, and although Insane Clown Posse's 'Fuck the World' beats it with 93 uses of the word, a live version of 'The Man Don't Give A Fuck' released as a single in 2004 broke that record.
