I’m at the bar, lead singer on stage is introducing their next song. It’s called, Kill Your Self. I noticed kids walking around with these t-shirts that say, on the back, in big letters, KILL YOUR SELF. Yes, a space between the yourself.
I approach the singer at the merch table after. I say, Kill Your Self. Interesting thing to put on a t-shirt. He says, yeah, we get comments about it all the time. It’s something someone said to me one time. I’m not telling somebody to kill themselves. I say, in the song, Someone said to me, just go kill yourself.
Then he says, but it sells, man. People love it. We’re sold out of that t-shirt.
It caught my eye, I must admit.
From my heart to yours,
Clint Curtis. Bartender.
