Superchunk - I Hate History 7" - Pink Vinyl

Matador (2013)

This 7" is only available as part of the Matador single subscription. It's expensive, but honestly, once you put a Superchunk 7" in the mix, there's simply no way I'm not going to buy it. Really skewed my record buying budget earlier in the year, but so be it, I need to keep my Superchunk collection complete.

We have 1 new Superchunk song called "I Hate History." It's a punchy mid tempo song that is very much in line with the type of music the band has been cranking out lately. It would absolutely fit in just fine on their last album, and hopefully it's a sign of more great songs to come.

The B-side is a short cover of a SS Decontrol song called "Glue." I can't say that I'm a particularly big fan of older hardcore stuff, and after youtubing the original, I'm not surprised I hadn't heard it before. For me, this Superchunk cover is just kind of a throwaway, but I do dig the A-side quite a bit.

  1. I saw Superchunk last night in SF and they did a medley of hardcore covers at the end, with John on vocals (and with Mac and then the opener's drummer on the traps). I only recognized the DK's "Police Truck" (SF tribute, of course), so perhaps they did "Glue" as well.

    Anyway, I was trying to catch up on Chunk's recent singles and was having trouble finding anything about I Hate History. Thank you for the info, and here's a link to Soundcloud for anyone who wants to hear it (it's not on Spotify or Youtube):
