Our pal Lorna Bracewell, a popular musician, activist, and now blogger in the Tampa area, has written a fun blog post listing rock songs about women murdering men. It reads:

“The idea for this post was born of my accidental experiment with decaffeinated coffee a week or so ago. (You can read more about that here.) One of the completely random and wholly undeveloped thoughts that “seeped in and out of my foggy, throbbing brain” during the course of that experiment was the following: There are a lot of really good songs about women murdering men. I’ve decided to explore and defend this claim. Here’s a list of the songs I was attempting to think about and some speculation as to why I/we enjoy them so much.”

Lorna lists a few favorites: “Janie’s Got A Gun” by Aerosmith and the Dixie Chick‘s “Goodbye, Earl.”

Read the rest of Lorna’s post here and let her –or us– know what other songs about women killing the menfolk we can think of.

  1. I don’t think I can continue my association with this blog/shocking manifesto lest my husband’s brilliant divorce lawyer attach this to his next motion. affidavit to some judge (and then try to get ME to pay for it!). Please be put on notice that if so, I expect you all to come to court with me.

  2. motion and/or affdavit that shoulda said…

  3. Jimmy says:

    I get to think of the brilliant “Cherry Red” by Lita Ford.

    “Now juicy Lucy
    Cream of the crop, she’s in love with a chump
    She caught him, she’s on it
    She put him in a hot seat, cooked him up
    Big shock light ’em up, watch ’em glow
    Pretty little wild thing don’t say no
    Lips to lips, skin on skin
    Pull the switch and let the fun begin”
