Nancy Boy is also a nickname/slur for effeminate homosexual men “Nancy Boy” is a song by British alternative rock band Placebo, released as the third single from their self-titled debut album. It was released on January 20, 1997 and became their breakthrough single, reaching #4 in the UK charts and making them known to mainstream audiences. As with their first single “Come Home”, the single/radio edit (a.k.a. the ‘Sex mix’) is a rerecorded version, noticeably different from the album version. It was later released on the compilation album Once More with Feeling. Read on...
