Released: September 2000

What a way to go out – 'Accelerator' was the last single released on Alan McGee's Creation label, and in terms of exits, it's pretty much as dramatic as leaving a party in a fighter jet. The Scream's 'XTRMNTR' album was a boundary-pushing mesh of industrial chrome-rock-pop, but this was simply a punk blast that shook the walls of the charts and sent one of the most influential labels of all time off in raucously jagged style.
