Slackerbitch
(B-Sides)
Lyrics and explanation



Nancy Boy 1 - Placebo

Lyrics : Placebo
Slackerbitch
It echoes in my brain
I didn't mean it
Pulses through my veins
I didn't mean it
I'm the one to blame
I didn't mean it
Did too much cocaine
I didn't mean it

Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Looks real cute,
Her lips are sore
Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Always comes back for more

Your memory will fade
I didn't mean it
You've always had it made
I didn't mean it
I know you feel betrayed
I didn't mean it
I just wanted to get laid
I didn't mean it

Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Looks real cute,
Her lips are sore
Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Always knocking on my door

You come across impure
I didn't mean it
You're goddamn immature
I didn't mean it
you act so insecure
I didn't mean it
You hate me now I'm sure
I didn't mean it

Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Looks real cute,
Her lips are sore
Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Dripping sex from every pore
Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Looks real cute,
Her lips are sore
Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Such a motherfucking bore.
Press Quotes

"NME : But what about the song ‘Slackerbitch’ on the B-side of '
Nancy Boy' ? As well as having all the customary drug references, it also contains a stream of abuse pointedly directed at some unnamed female."
BM : “Well, you’re right, it is an abusive song, and we’ve had problems with it. We debated for a long time whether to put it on the album, because I was worried about it being construed as misogynistic. I play it to girls to find out their reactions and most of them are surprised I thought it was misogynistic.”

“I mean it’s a very politically incorrect song to put out, but I’ll stand behind it because it contains feeling that some men do feel towards women. Men feel very threatened by women. Sometimes you have to say something negative to make a positive point. I mean if I want to insult a guy I’ll call him a prick, and if it’s a girl you might call her a bitch, what’s the actual difference? This song opens up that and forces that question to be addressed.”


Brian Molko, NME, january 1997



"MM : "Perhaps even more controversial that 'Nancy Boy' ; is a caustic B-side titled “Slackerbitch”. With it’s chorus, “Slackerbitch, fag-hag, whore”, it is, Molko admits, “quite horrible… an exploration into somebody’s misogyny; this man in the song feels very threatened by women, but at the same time, it’s very heartfelt. It’s angry and nasty and insulting and completely politically incorrect. I’m not afraid to say I’ve felt some of those things. It walks a very fine line, and it’s dangerous. I decided that I have to be responsible as the person who wrote those lyrics. I know that it describes a genuine emotion.”

BM : “Interestingly enough, before it was released I played it to a lot of women, without saying anything, to see if they would construe it as being misogynist. The only people who found it offensive were men.”

“BM : I think the point a lot of people would miss is that you’re not supposed to like the guy in the song. He’s a fool.”


Brian Molko, Melody Maker, January 1997



But you do have powerful b-sides like «Slackerbitch». I think everyone is expecting to hear this one live one day...

BM : Not one of my favorites to tell you the truth...

It's not?

BM : Nooo.... (smiles)
