I don’t know
I don’t think that this “incident” has something to do with the crazy guy who broke into her house. Thank you so much!!!
dear,it’s written on my FAQ. I found by searching a lot
After that freak who broke into her house,I would be as much as she must be afraid of the nirvana fans! It does makes sense to me,alot by the way
There is an update on that article that was rude about Frances that says:
"We have been a band for three years. The name was Gateway Drugs was conceived in August 2011. GATE·WAY- something that serves as an entrance or a means of access. DRUGS – substances that have a physiological effect when ingested or otherwise introduced into the body. It’s not just a band name to us, it’s the epitome of the world we want to create musically.
The title of the song we just released is a satire (the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, in the context of contemporary and topical issues). It was originally written (with the same title) over two months ago. The lyrics take an empathetic viewpoint for victims of the media’s sick fascination with death, and exploitation of them. We used Frances as the archetype. Coincidently we heard rumors from various friends about our band name being stolen by a “certain someone,” who was fully aware of us and our name, when we met him a year ago … Then after reading the Courtney Love Quietus interview where Courtney claimed that “certain someone” has a new band called Gateway Drugs, http://thequietus.com/articles/15019-courtney-love-hole-interview
It only confirmed our suspicions … The song took on a new life and meaning.
The song is a double entendre, it has two meanings. The first of which we explained, and the second, protecting our name, artistically not maliciously. Any negativity in or surrounding the song was directed towards a “certain someone” … It was never our intention to hurt Frances. We were focusing on societies gross pop culture obsessions, and complete lack of human empathy. More importantly voicing the disgust with fighting for our name with someone who was intentionally trying to steal it, and stands for everything WE DON’T.
Everything we have and do, we earn ourselves. We believe in authenticity, integrity, and our stand against pirating the underground.
There is a growing hope for local bands with labels such as Burger Records, Lollipop Records, Buddyhead Records, Mexican Summer, Manimal Vinyl, Captured Tracks etc., who are giving artists a chance who otherwise wouldn’t have one, due to the dying and harsh reality of the music industry. It’s an exciting time for music. A scene emerging from something authentic, from people who are authentic. Going and seeing shows is inspiring again.
The truth is, different strokes for different folks, some people are going to love to hate, and some people hate to love. That’s alright with us, all we want to do is express ourselves, and make people feel something … Peace in the Middle East, Love G.D.”
Just thought I’d share with you all because some people have been sending hate or are confused by the meaning of the article as much as the meaning of the song. Now we can understand,move on and enjoy the songs that are pretty cool!
That’s what I thought too!
