Faith No More Released The Single 'Last Cup Of Sorrow' 23 Years Ago

On August 5th 1997 Faith No More released Last Cup Of Sorrow as their second single from Album Of The Year. "Another wonderfully diverse offering from the San Francisco gods.

Even their crap stuff is interesting at the very least, but this is a sultry late night summer classic. Brilliant." - Kerrang! | 1997 "The toy piano idea basically started as a loop in Studio Vision, where I was playing bass and guitar. The piano was added as a rhythm element.
