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

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 punknews.org, 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.
