Goth rocker Melora Creager from the band Rasputina wrote the terrible Taliban mans words into her song Choose Me For A Champion on her new album Oh Perilous World!
Creager says news items from the Internet give her inspiration for songs, but shes not cranking out terrorist tunes.
As she puts it, Its just pretty fascinating writing, and I use some of those ideas for characters. No one has really taken the time to read into what a villain really thinks.
And if that wasnt enough, one of her previous songs was mistaken to be about President George W. Bush.
Says Creager: I wrote about a bipolar person in my song The Mayor, but everyone took that as if it was about the president. Im sorry to say he does have issues, but I wasnt thinking about him when I wrote it.
