Released: 28th June 1999.
Despite the title, this song is far from awful. In fact, it's probably one of the best songs from the "Celebrity Skin" album, second only to the title track. Very much an anthemic song, it should have been released much sooner - the fact that the album's been out for quite some time now is, unfortunately, likely to be the main reason for the single's lack of success.
The problem with the "Celebrity Skin" album is that most of the tracks are good album tracks, but only "Celebrity Skin" itself is really good enough to be a single. "Awful" is a decent enough song, but I can hardly recommend buying the single. Save up for the album instead.
