Manic Street Preachers are a Welsh alternative rock band, formed in 1986 in Blackwood and consisting of James Dean Bradfield (lead vocals, lead guitar), Nicky Wire (bass guitar, lyrics) and Sean Moore (drums). They are often colloquially known as "The Manics", or simply, "Manics". Originally a quartet, the band became a trio when primary lyricist and rhythm guitarist Richey Edwards disappeared on 1 February 1995. Their early combination of androgynous glam imagery and critical social lyrics about "culture, alienation, boredom and despair" gained them a loyal following and cult status.

I came to this site to find out what other people think. Mind you, is it having a go at the women that dance on podiums at Raves year after year off it on E or whatever. Saying that the way you destroy your beauty is cos of taking drugs yyear after year. I don't think it is but alot of the Manics lyrics are hard to understand exactly what the meaning is. So sorry if my interpretation has confused you more!.
