As we all know, almost half of musicians write one or more songs about rape/sexual disfunction. Although most are done in metaphor, or completely vague. Most people don't realize what a song is about until they actually look into the lyrics. So my question to you all is, how many songs do you know about rape, and how did you figure out they were about rape?

I would have to say my favorite is Tyler by the Toadies. Great stuff.....

I saw the video first, and just thought it was some special ed guy running around in a jump suit, but then when I looked up the lyrics, I got really into the song.

Guys Like You Make Us Look Bad - blessthefall

I looked into the lyrics (since it's screamo), and the opening lines are "you scream don't look, you scream don't touch, what have they done, what have I not". I also looked into a sight where people discuss the means of songs, and most people thought that it was talking about the singer wishing he could have stopped a girl from being raped. The video, seems to get this point across as well.

i thought that was about a vibrator not rape, i could be wrong though.
So that with good courage we say, “The Lord is my helper. I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

C'mon, man. We're just kidding. We all know that drummers are important.

After all, without drummers, who would bag my groceries?

that song isn't about rape, it's about the feeling Kurt got by media and outside sources deteriorating his well-being (for lack of the actual quote)


The Exit - Susan ... is a great song about rape...it's on the American Pie 2 soundtrack even
'never a victim,' the role model said,
bang-bang, the bad guy is dead,
always a rockstar on eMpty TV,
the lesson complete, now the child has needs.

Decide for yourself. it could go either way.
(I cut an paste this, by the way)

Hey you, hey you, Devil's little sister
Listening to your Twisted Transistor
Hold it between your legs
Turn it up, turn it up
Low end is coming through
Can't get enough

A lonely life, where no one understands you
But don't give up, because the music do
Music do [x6]

Because the music do
And then it's reaching
Inside you forever preaching
*** you too
Your scream's a whisper
Hang on you
Twisted Transistor

Hey you, hey you, finally you get it
The world ain't fair, eat you if you let it
And as your tears fall on
Your breast, your dress
Vibrations coming through
You're in a mess

A lonely life, where no one understands you
But don't give up, because the music do
Music do [x6]

Because the music do
And then it's reaching
Inside you forever preaching
*** you too
Your scream's a whisper
Hang on you
Twisted Transistor
Music do, Music do [x4]

Hey you, hey you, this won't hurt a bit \
This won't hurt a bit, this won't hurt \
Says who? Says who? \
Anesthetize this *** here's the part that sounds like rape.
Anesthetize this ***, anesthetize! /
Just let me be /
Between you and me don't fit /

Because the music do
And then it's reaching
Inside you forever preaching
*** you too
Your scream's a whisper
Hang on you
Twisted Transistor

It's actually about a series of rapes/murders it's based on a true story. That lake is where some guy left the bodies of the victims.

Amy in the White Coat by Bright Eyes
It's about this girl that the songwriter, Conor, went to school with. She was molested by her father and she ended up killing herself. These are the lyrics.

You take your clothes off right after school
The tea is on, the flame is blue
You hope this won't take all afternoon
The TV's waiting to talk to you
It's your naked body on white velour
But there's no feeling, just weight on you
You get nauseous now as he speaks to you
Such proper language for acts so cruel
He says "We all follow the rules
We can't very well go and break them now, can we
For you?
Your older sisters, I've had them too
But you're my favorite, you know it's true
You look like your mother, in that thin disguise
Your parting mouth, your shutting eyes
And the way that you hate me, and the length of your hair
It's the reason I made you, it's the bond that we share
You see we're all trying to endure
You could easily go and make your own life somewhere
Couldn't you?"

With the sunbeams bright
You keep your eyes shut
Your alarm clock lies
Get to school on time
Where you're a bag of warm fluid
Where you're the corpse in the class
You walk so near to the lockers
You lay so low in the grass
Did you get that coat from the principal?
Did you get that bruise on the bus?
You should wash your hair more
You should look more like us
I saw you walking once under powder blue skies
You looked cold still, your color was high
And I tried to talk to you, but you walked right by
I don't know which I said then, hello or goodbye
We all want to be pure
But it isn't a very easy thing now, is it
To do?
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.
