short for the manic street preachers. they were one of the greatest bands on earth until Richey James Edwards disappeared in the early '90's. their early albums (the holy bible & generation terrorists are fabulous iconoclastic punk) now, however, theyre a bit crap.

short name for manic street preachers a welsh rock band

often thought to be better prior to the disapearance of rythym guitarist/lyricist Richy Edwards
this not the case, as they have matured to be one of the best bands of the 90's and are one of the greatest live acts ever. anybody who says that they are not as good since richey disapeared is an ignorant cock, as they have had most hits without him including

if you tollerate this then your children will be next
