single favorite Buzzcocks song?

For me, they're one of the most underrated bands of the time. Should've been bigger than both the Clash and the Pistols.

If you had to pick one and only one song, which is the flat-out absolute best? For me, it is either "Harmony in my Head" or "Ever Fallen in Love," no contest.

Here are my Buzzcocks observations after touring with them: They are a bunch of sexual deviants. I could go on for days.

Shocking given "Orgasm Addict" (though that's a Devoto song), "Just Lust," et al. :-) I've heard stories, but ultimately I don't care much. It's all about the music, maaan (said in that hippie-ish way).

Favorite songs:
Ever Fallen in Love
I Don't Mind
You Say You Don't Love Me

They are underrated, becaused they fucked up themselves and got lost, when the others skyrocket or exploded gloriously. Generic genius pop punk with an artsy edge vs. the social rebels with a political edge and the scandalous with a high provocation and entertainment angle. No wonder they went under.

Nostalgia

Buzzcocks was not a band I listened to growing up. In fact, I don't even think I heard a track from them until I was in my 30's. Admittedly, I really wasn't interested in exploring their catalog until I saw that they were the opening band for a Pearl Jam show I was attending in the early 2000's. But, since then, I listen to them often...Love Bites usually. Great stuff, wish I'd discovered them sooner.

I didn't explore the Buzzcocks discography until the early '90s, and even then I was an SGS-is-all-you-need kinda guy until pretty recently. Over the last few months, I've acquired OG UA pressings of Another Music and Love Bites as well as the expanded 2 CD versions of those two (I already had IRS pressings of SGS and ADKOT that I picked up for a buck each at the library store), and I have truly seen the light WRT their brilliance.

What Do I Get?

The swelling feedback intro and little syncopated bits between the verses @ 2:01 and throughout the ending/outro are killer and make the whole song. Also, the video is near-perfect.
