1 min read

The Drugs Don’t Work by The Verve is today’s featured song.

On this day in 1999, The Verve announced their second split. The neo-psychedelic Britpop band had gone their separate ways once before, after completing their second album, A Northern Soul, in 1996. After reconvening in 1997 to record arguably their greatest work – the chart-topping Urban Hymns, containing the singles “The Drugs Don’t Work” and “Bitter Sweet Symphony” – they disbanded again. Frontman Richard Ashcroft, who went on to enjoy a successful solo career, stated to the press that the band would never reunite but in 2007, the group put aside their differences to record Forth.
