"Pop's Love Suicide" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
Can you figure out what I want
Pull the trigger with a pop gun
Mindless fools that aggravate it
Pick at you in desperation

Oh it's a love pop suicide
Oh I'm in love pop suicide
Oh I really don't know

Pop life living it is so real
Midwest farmers' kids are milkfed
Breed and incubate what you see
Ten years later here on t.v.

Oh it's a love pop suicide
Oh I'm in love pop suicide
Oh I really don't know

Father can't you love your woman
Father can't you teach your children
Long range love implosion short wicked
Short wave mind explosion

Oh I'm in love suicide
About a pop star homicide

    General CommentI think this song is about the pressures of fame...though the lyrics are hard to follow, perhaps reflecting the state of mind of one in Weiland's position?

    Very catchy song, I'm surprised I'm the first comment, but it has to start somewhere, I guess...

    General Commenti thinks its about how rock stars are looked up to and expected to fulfill a certain image that is not really them or not soemthing they can maintain honestly. he tellin everyone that hes not the bad ass rock star everyone thinks he is and hes a normal human who goes thru traumas just like everyone else, and cant be expected to be a super hero

    General CommentI think it's also a thinly veiled reference to David Bowie (one of Scotts biggest influences) and his song Rock n Roll Suicide. That song was for the sixties seventies, Pop's Love Suicide is the 90's update?

    General CommentI agree with the David Bowie thing even though I don't know the song or like David Bowie. It sounds right.

    General CommentI think it's about how the public reacts to deaths, being actually homicides which get referred to/covered up as suicides. Like the murder of Sid Vicious, Kurt Cobain, Heath Ledger, it has to do with covered-up death mysteries I believe.
