Song 2 by Blur (Read-along)

This is a discussion thread · 1 replies
"Song 2" is a song by English alternative rock band Blur, and the second track on, and second single released from their fifth album Blur in April 1997. The riff-based track, known for its overdriven chorus, is among the most well-known songs the band has recorded.

In the UK, "Song 2" built upon the success of Blur's chart-topping single "Beetlebum" to reach number two in the charts.[citation needed] It was also the band's biggest hit in the US, reaching number six on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart. Though it is atypical of Blur's trademark style, in America it is the song most closely associated with the band.

The song was meant to be a parody of American grunge music. Ironically, it was embraced by the same radio stations whose airplay choices the song was parodying in the first place.
