XL to Release Be Your Own Pet’s “Violent” Material

posted by on May 22 at 10:10 AM

Universal took three songs off Be Your Own Pet’s latest record Get Awkward before releasing it in the US early this year. The promo copies had already gone out, but the final pressing lacked “Blow Yr Mind,” “Black Hole,” and “Becky” due to “violent” lyrics like “We’ll wait with knives after class!” and “Eating pizza is really great / So is destroying everything you hate.”


According to, XL will release the three songs on June 3 as a digital single and a double 7”.

Proceed with caution, those songs might make you do crazy things. If My Chemical Romance can be held responsible for a young girl’s suicide, clearly Be Your Own Pet can cause a disturbing upsurge in pizza eating.

I can't wait for the Nylon tour. Be Your Own Pet will be awesome, but I'm most excited to see Switches! I just read a cool article about their fav albums in Ragged. Go here to download - it's free

"..clearly Be Your Own Pet can cause a disturbing upsurge in pizza eating."
that's like the best line you've ever written

was anyone else there when they played the noise show at el corazon? they should release some of that stuff.
