Kill Fuck Die with a Hole In Your Head

This entry is not as graphic as the title would indicate. However, it will illustrate what an intensely type-A personality music freak I am.  Which means you should still be afraid…

A few weeks ago I heard a song from the band W.A.S.P on XM radio’s The Boneyard. 99.9% of the time, XM always has the name of both the artist and the song on the display, but every once in a while, they miss one of them.  This was one of them.  Part of the song’s chorus had the lyrics "No you can’t take it, no you can’t that away from me" which sounded familiar not only in because of its words, but because of the phrasing of it as well.  But for the life of me, I couldn’t place it.  I was actually thinking it might have been a cover song, so I spent some time online trying to track down the name of the song, typing in combinations of the lyrics and the band name.  I finally came up with it being the song "Kill Fuck Die" or "KFD" for short.  I downloaded it off of iTunes and listened to it a few times and still couldn’t place it. 

Now, I’m going to see W.A.S.P. on Thursday night with John, and the only song I have by them is this "KFD" song – so he made me a compilation disc of their best songs so I can be famliar with the material (I’ve been to too many concerts without knowing anything about the band), and while just listening to "KFD" again, I just got it!  And I can NOT
believe I couldn’t place this before. 

The chorus
of “no you can’t take it, no you can’t take that away from me” in "KFD" are the
same lyrics AND are sung in the same phrasing as in the first part of the
chorus of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like a Hole.”

Yes, I’m quite excited about figuring this out.  That  is probably kind of sad, I know, but hey, it makes me happy.   Most of you are probably worried about me in some way – either because I listen to this music, or because I get excited about such ridiculously trivial information, but that’s just the way I am.  the rest of you who aren’t worried, know exactly what I’m talking about!

  1. I found your blog after specifically hunting around the net to see if anybody else heard the similarities.

    Although the songs are different, the similarities in the chorus is unmistakable.

    Head like a hole was released on the pretty hate machines album 1989, and kill fuck die seems to have come from the 1997 album of the same name.

    On a side note, the lyrics ‘I wanna live’ also sounds similar to the Marylin Manson song’s “long hard road out of hell”.
