VIDEO OF THE WEEK: MANIC STREET PREACHERS – ‘THE MASSES AGAINST THE CLASSES’
December 31, 2018
Released in January 2000, Manic Street Preachers’ non-album single ‘The Masses Against The Classes’ peaked at number one on the UK singles chart.
This feat was made all the more incredible given that it was deleted upon its day of release.
Consequently, no promo video was made for the single, though the closest the band got to that was this incendiary footage of them detonating this combustible rendition at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on New Year’s Eve 1999.
And right now, that seems as good a time as any to get re-acquainted with this classic.
