Know Your Enemy (Manic Street Preachers) Easter Egg - Hidden Track

After the last song has finished, fast forward to 8:40 track time. You will be treated to an extra song. Rumor has it that Paul McCartney song.

The hidden track is not by Paul McCartney, but is by the late 80s English indie group McCarthy. It is called 'We are all bourgeois now'.

To spike22_2000_uk@hotmail.com, I take your point that if you buy a Manics album, it's Manics songs you want to hear. However, a hidden track, I think, bends the rules rather than breaks them. If it had been an original Manics song, surely they would have wanted it credited on the back sleeve? I know it is inside, but it's near the bottom of the credits just to say it was by McCarthy. Remember that if you pick up an album and look at the songs on the back, it is, in the most subliminal form, marketing, as well as plain informative. We Are All Bourgeois Now wasn't listed on the back, so you don't know it's there until you play the CD. Cheers.

Is this egg on the American version? Or should I be Napster-bound?

I don't think it's on the US copy. I think it's only in the UK. That's what I read. I know it's not on the Canadian copy (which I have). It's on Napster. I got it from there.

I'm not sure whether this is in the US version or not but you can also find the track on disc 2 of the b-sides compilation Lipstick Traces. It's a pretty good track (as was the original) and well worth a listen. You US guys should really go online when new albums come out and do a comparison with the releases in other countries. Importing might be a tad expensive but if you love a band then it's worth the extra $$$ for some extra tracks and the like.
