Manic Street Preachers’ “She Bathed Herself In a Bath of Bleach”

Song Of The Day

Song: She Bathed Herself in a Bath of Bleach
Artist: Manic Street Preachers
Album: Journal for Plague Lovers

For band to come back to its roots in such solid form with absolutely zero artificiality is nigh unheard of. Yet the Manic Street Preachers succeeded in doing so with their 2009 album Journal Plague For Lovers. A song like “She Bather Herself in a Bath of Bleach” combines all the best elements of the Manics: the bitingly witty yet acerbic lyrics, extremely melodic and catchy chorus and the ability to make something as crazy as someone bathing in bleach and make it sound like a downright anthem. It’s a rare blend in rock these days and we are all the richer for having a band like the Manics around to show everyone that you can combine the artsy lyrical side with the bombastic pop side and not sacrifice a single bit of either element (ahem, take note modern U2).
