“For what it’s worth I’m sorry for the hurt/I’ll be the first to say I’ve made my own mistakes,” sings Liam Gallagher in the chorus to his new song, “For What It’s Worth.” Of course, given Gallagher’s status as one of the most outspoken and at times challenging front men in the history of rock music, not to mention his ongoing combativeness with his brother, Noel, it’s hard not to think of that when listening to the track.
