don't you tell me how i feel.

flashback friday: “tear you apart” by v

Back in 2006, She Wants Revenge released “Tear You Apart,” notable for its manic Ian Curtis-like delivery and hilariously specific lyrics about high-school obsession (“There’s always repercussions when you’re dating in school” — so practical). Of course, the band name and album cover also worked seamlessly to support the notion of being completely off the rails.

What’s happened since? Perhaps the image was too one-note to keep up, but the group hasn’t done much that I’m aware of in the intervening years, and they’ve been on indefinite hiatus since 2012.

Fun fact: Joaquin Phoenix directed the music video, set at a school dance and rife with teenage alienation. Also, communism. Maybe.
