Crashing onto the scene and claiming Best British Newcomer from Kerrang! in 2001, lostprophets had the world at their feet. Unfortunately, it all went as pear-shaped as Vanessa Feltz when it came to gigs, with poor mixes and even worse vocals letting the misguided mystics down terribly.
However, MTV's favourite Welshmen are back with a song that will be tearing up the dance floor in clubs from Cardiff to Carlisle this Christmas. Burn Burn graduates with honours from the "written for radio" class of 2003. Opening with a riff catchier than the flu at this time of year and flying into an arena-sized, shout-along chorus (which reeks of Sick Of It All), it hits the bridge in perfect time at just under the two minute mark.
Original it ain't but I dare ya to listen to it once and not hum it for days after.
