All apologies

A headline on CNN's site caught my eye:

Tim McGraw apologizes for album

I'm not familiar with McGraw, but based on what I do know, he could probably have a good reason to do this for every album in his catalog. Here, however, McGraw is telling his fans that he is sorry that his record company put out another "greatest hits" album.

At least McGraw has the integrity to express his regrets. What other bands have reason to apologize for dud albums? Here are some suggestions, based on the idea that these are decent artists who dropped a piece of crap on fans and never said they were sorry for doing so:
  • Republic, New Order
  • Presence, Led Zeppelin
  • Give 'Em Enough Rope, The Clash
  • Give My Regards to Broad Street, Paul McCartney
  • Mighty Like A Rose, Elvis Costello
  • Never Let Me Down, David Bowie
  • Kill Uncle, Morrissey
  • The Spaghetti Incident?, Guns N' Roses
  • A Momentary Lapse of Reason, Pink Floyd
  • Monster, R.E.M.
  • It's Hard, The Who
