Blending bittersweet lyrics and driving guitars, ‘Not Nineteen Forever’ charts the inevitable guilt following a drunken night out. Released in March 2008, it went on to become the band’s biggest hit to date, peaking at Number 19 in the UK charts.
Here’s how Liam Fray describes the inspiration behind the track: ‘You know when you’ve had a particularly heavy weekend and, come Monday, you realise you’ve neglected the people who are important. But you don’t care because you’ve been out for four days. It hit me one day, and I realised I shouldn’t be going out so much and that I should calm down a bit.’
