Don't Look Back In Anger was the bands second single to reach #1 on the UK Singles chart (guess which their first one was?) and was certified platinum. It generates some of the loudest crowd sing-alongs you'll ever hear.

Interesting Facts: The title was a reference to David Bowie's song "Look Back In Anger", as Bowie was a major influence on the band.

For whatever reason, aside from No Diggity, no song brings me back to the 90's faster than this song.

Interesting Facts: Nina Persson wanted to write a Bossa nova type of song and penned the lyrics to this at the airport while waiting for a plane.
