With the small matter of Faith No More’s headline shows in June, Metal Blogmaster, Dan Hudson, rounds up the songs he can’t wait to hear live.
Ashes to Ashes
Standout track from their broadly disappointing Album Of The Year swansong. Patton delivers a career-best performance in this anthemic chorus.
From Album Of The Year, 1997
We Care A Lot
The hilarious piss-take of celebrity altruism. Features the lyric “We care a lot about starvation and the food that live aid bought.” Ouch!
From Introduce Yourself, 1985
Alongside Green Day’s Longview, this is possibly the best song about, well, you’ll get the gist.
From The Real Thing, 1989
Spectacular return to form from their forthcoming album, Sol Invictus, their first slice of new material since 1998. This is EVERYTHING we wanted from their return and more!
From Sol Invictus, 2015
King for a Day
Possibly the best introduction to the band there is, featuring a number of different Mike Patton vocal styles and arguably the best example of quiet/loud dynamics in their arsenal.
From King for a Day…Fool for a Lifetime
