Wait, what is this episode? I’m glad you asked. I’ve decided to go back and delve a bit deeper into some of the older songs and give them the treatment I would have given them had they appeared on one of the later albums. This episode I’ll be covering Abuse Me, the second single released from Silverchair’s second album Freak Show (unless you were in North America, where it was the first single). It entered the ARIA chart April 6, 1997, peaking at number 9. What’s interesting about this song’s structure? What’s its legacy? What does ‘throw the sailors overboard’ even mean? Let’s find out.
