18. Happy Mondays Vs The Beatles
Shaun Ryder liked to quote liberally from other songs in his lyrics, but on Happy Mondays' first album (deep breath) Squirrel And G Man 24 Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile (White Out), he made the mistake of using lyrics from The Beatles' Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da on the track Desmond. Subsequent pressings saw the track removed and replaced with the classic single 24 Hour Party People.
