"Good for Nothing" is a single by English indie rock band Hard-Fi. It is the first single from their third studio album Killer Sounds. The single cover does not bear the "Parental Advisory" sticker, despite the profanity used during the chorus. It was released as a digital download on 17 June 2011,[1] and soon after received a "Song of the Week" designation from The Tune.[2]

Music video[edit]

The official music video was filmed in Barcelona, Spain.[3] It features Hard-Fi walking around the Tibidabo area, while there are shots of the Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor.[4] There are also appearances of Sant Martí, El Raval and an official RCD Espanyol shirt, the non-touristic and commercial part from Barcelona.
