The song has earned a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the shortest recorded song ever. It is precisely 1.316 seconds long.
The song’s writer, Justin Broadrick (later of Godflesh), said:
You Suffer was largely a comedy thing, one-second song. Utterly retarded. It’s ridiculous, but it was hilarious. We played that song in front of 30 local kids, like, every weekend. We played that song 30 times. It was a laugh.
For their Peel Session, the band recorded a slower version called “You Suffer (Part II)”.
