To err is human, and even Bono, patron saint that he is, wrote a song about saying sorry, "The Sweetest Thing" as an apology to his wife for forgetting her birthday. Nirvana had some remorse, and kept it darkly opaque as usual on "All Apologies,"  while Michael Stipe belts out "I'm sorry" over and over again on "So. Central Rain" as he "waited for your call."
