The Horror Honeys: Revenge Wednesday Jam - 'Not So Pretty Now'

Revenge Wednesday Jam - 'Not So Pretty Now'

Nobody burns quite as bright
Well goddamn, maybe you're right
There's always battles left for you to fight
And you might, you might, you just might
But there is something I've got to say
There is a price you're gonna pay
Try as hard as you can to stay
You're just fading and fading and fading the fuck away

If there is a Honey here who wasn't in love with Trent Reznor at one point, I don't know who she is! Trent and the fellas from Nine Inch Nails have been writing some of the most badass, pissed off songs since we were wee little Honeys in tiny little goth clothes. But, when it comes to revenge songs, my personal favorite from NIN has to be this more recent track, about a fading star who isn't as great as she thinks. Part of me has applied to this to situations in my own life (don't. date. musicians.), while another part of me just pictures Gwyneth Paltrow every time I hear it (sorrynotsorry). No matter who think of when you listen to the song, you have to admit: it's a hell of a revenge song! ~RH
