14. Manic Street Preachers - Patrick Bateman
Released as the b-side to La Tristesse Durera (Scream to a Sigh) in 1993, this track is a study of the main protagonist in Bret Easton Ellis's novel American Psycho. It highlights some of the murderous Bateman's obsessions: "Genesis, Huey Lewis, Filofax, CD 5 / A backdrop to discuss over expensive wine."
