Default XYU is the best SP song

Iím watching MCIS shows and for real this was SP at their most raw and powerful. That era of that band at its best.

It’s certainly one of their best heavy songs, sure.

When it comes down to fans talking about “best” songs it’s always thru the eyes of ruby this and porcelina that, and we forget about xyu.

XYU is great, but itís one of the lower tier songs on MCIS.

Nowhere near aTop 20 SP song.

xyu fuckin' rips & for a long time was almost certainly my most-played SP song

what a fuckin' rager, on album & basically any live performance from '95-'97

fuck those alt versions though, tbh

It's good but there's plenty of other bands who do that sort of thing better and without the.. I dunno.. proto-incel, proto-MRA ickiness exhibited in XYU.

If I had to choose a best SP song it'd be something more uniquely SP.

All I'm saying is maybe we need a little less XYU, and a little more XXU.

It does have those things, but I always felt like he was showcasing the fucked up parts of his personality, hopefully in a way that stops it from coming out in a worse way. I mean it's basically some kind of super-controlling husband/boyfriend possessive abusive rape song, isn't it? I don't think Billy is that person, but that kind of controlling impulse might lose power by expressing it in some way that's not dangerous


In theory.

I donít really think anyone knows what this song was about. But to me it sounds like someone trying to take some control in an abusive relationship and realizing thereís no out.

Stalking? Rape? That seems too dark from reading the words, but maybe Iím turning a blind eye here.

yes i agree the lyrics do seem sound sort of rapey somehow. maybe it's the parts that go "I WANNA FEEL YOU UP" and "I WANNA RAPE YOU"

got no idea what it's about tho, those pumpkins lyrics, always so cryptic lol
