  1. Loser

    "Loser" is a song by the American alternative rock singer Beck. It was written by Beck and record producer Carl Stephenson, who both produced the song with Tom Rothrock. "Loser" was initially released as Beck's second single by independent record label Bong Load Custom Records on 12" vinyl format with catalogue number BL5 on March 8, 1993. When it was first released independently, "Loser" began receiving airplay on various modern rock stations, and the song's popularity eventually led to a major-label record deal with Geffen Records-subsidiary DGC Records. After the song's re-release under DGC, the song peaked at #10 on the United States Billboard Hot 100 in April 1994, becoming Beck's first single to hit a major chart. The song was subsequently released on the 1994 album Mellow Gold.

Examples of loser in a Sentence

  1. Bill Lyon:

    If at first you don't succeed, find out if the loser gets anything.

  2. Chris Stirewalt:

    I have every expectation that if this is a close election, whether its Democrat or Republican, the lawyers will be involved and itwill be acrimonious. We have been there before. The 2000 election was a thing, i think to Mollys point, I think to the larger issue, we are having a hard time and its a little bit in both parties, we dont trust the gatekeepers, we dont trust the referees... We dont have the confidence that people will accept outcomes. But, I have every confidence we will have a decisive election and that the loser will lose and the winner will win.

  3. Jeb Bush:

    If Lincoln were alive today, imagine the foolishness he would have to suffer. Advisers telling him to shave his beard. Cable pundits telling him to lose the top hat, opposition researchers calling him a five-time loser before the age of 50.

  4. Mark Fidrych:

    When you're a winner you're always happy, but if you're happy as a loser you'll always be a loser

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Losers do quit when they are fed up. But on the other hand, winners never quit until they win. What actually do I intend to say? Am just saying that, giving up before succeeding is what makes anybody a loser. Whereas, never quitting is what distinguishes a winner from a loser. Therefore, never be fed up with anything positive in life, until you emerge a success. In case you don't know? What lies ahead of you could be far much better than anything you ever thought possible. Anyway, I guess that's a reasonable reason why you shouldn't give up on your faith until you succeed.
