Today’s track of the day comes from Feral, aka California’s pop punker Kelsey Ferrell. Loser is a bitingly witty song about hook-up culture:

“I wrote a song about a guy and so he later told all our mutual friends that I was ‘totally into him,’ which wasn’t exactly true. I felt like he felt a little too special, and so I came up with the phrase ‘you’re not the only loser that I fucked,’ in response to him,” says Ferrell. “That evolved into the song Loser, which is about the mistrials of sleeping around in my college years. It grew to be about many different people and experiences and stands as a critique to sex positive culture, which, in a heterosexual framework, often coaxes women into a false sense of security in their sexual pursuits, leading them to get hurt in both cruel and criminal ways because of a misleading and somewhat naive branch of feminism.”
