No Love

Album: The Trouble With Angels (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from American Alternative Metal band Filter's fifth album, The Trouble With Angels.
  • The song's music video was directed by Mark Racco (Nirvana, Buckcherry, Stone Temple Pilots and Guns N' Roses). He explained the clip to Noisecreep: "Conceptually, 'No Love' is about temptation and seduction. The imagery is metaphoric. The poker game, the dance, the beautiful women, the masquerade. It's more of a cautionary tale rather than a celebratory one, about the dangers of game playing, anger, lust and resentment and how they can lead to the dark side of eroticism and power, which can become a trap; the temptations offered by the music business. Sort of like a public service."
