The killer of a woman is usually a man, and that is exactly what this song is all about. The rape takes place in the context of a gang-related violence, and the lyrics are full of retribution. The song is also a protest against the misogynistic attitude of our criminal justice system. The lyrics refer to the rape trial of a British Army officer, which contextualizes the outrage within a broader frame of female objectification.
Attack is praised by music critics for its sound and lyrics. They ranked it number 11 on their Top 50 Songs of 2005 list. Jim Campbell of Playback praised the song’s sweeping vocals and pulsating rhythm section. Guitar distortions and keyboard effects are also highlighted. Leto’s voice is scream-worthy and powerful. These qualities make this song a standout in the rock world. This is a band you won’t want to miss!
Phair’s Exile in Guyville is a powerful album-length response to the carelessly sexist indie rock culture. With its lyrics, Phair links everyday callous treatment to a larger culture of violence against women. It also highlights the sex abuse that happens in the Caribbean. It’s not only the victims of abuse – they’re also the perpetrators. For Phair, it’s a message that demands respect.
