Antichrist Television Blues

Album: Neon Bible (2007)
  • Win Butler revealed in a Rolling Stone article that "Antichrist Television Blues" was largely inspired by Joe Simpson, the father and manager of Jessica and Ashlee. Drummer Jeremy Gara told popmatters.com: "It could be about other people, too, but it definitely applies to that family's dynamic. We haven't heard from their camp at all, which is great, because some people we've worked with have worked with them and said you definitely don't want to cross them."
