    General CommentIt could just be me.. but does anyone else find it amusing that a band that is pretty much.. 'enemies' with Placebo has a song called 'Bionic'? I'm a nerd..

    General CommentThe song is about a woman using a dildo. It is told from the woman's point of view. The line "none of you can make the grade" is the woman saying how she prefers her dildo to men.

    General CommentI heard this song was a hypothetical situation about robots 'fucking'. But the dildo dituation seems alot more viable.
    Would the rival band be King Adora by any chance? Unfortunate if so; Placebo and King Adora are both 2 of my favorite bands.

    General CommentI never really thought about it in a masturbation sense, but that does make sense and I think that's fascinating. xD I always just jam out to this song while I get high. I ALWAYS listen to Placebo.

    General CommentYep, it's been said a lot (by the band) that it is about robot sex.

    What enemy would that be, itsatsix? I can only think of Limp Bizkit. That asshat.

    General Comment*nods* Indeed, Limp Bizkit are Placebo's prime enemies. Fred durst is a fat homophobe.

    And Poison_girl13 is correct on the meaning of the song.

    General CommentThis is a quality song! great guitars puts me in a good mood on the way to work. I like the dildo concept that is interesting...!

    ^ a tip , just go if you get a chance to see them, i just saw them in birmingham and they were superb, if you get hot you can always move to the sides don't pass up an opportunity if you get it!!

    General Commenthmm okay sorry if this sounds slightly gross but you guys do realise that brian is bi? I dont think he's talking from a woman's perspective using a vibrator- think he's talking about himself:)..
