This is the title track of the fourth studio album by Courtney Love's band Hole. The song is a complete rewrite of the version that Love played live in 2007 and 2008.
Love told Rolling Stone that "there's a lot of maternal instinct" on the album, and probably her favorite lyric is from this song, which goes: "Nobody's daughter, she's never was, she never will be beholden to anyone. She cannot kill. You don't understand how evil we really are,'" She explained, "I don't even know what that really means, but I know it's something to do with my daughter and it's also to do with me." Love is referring to her teenage daughter Frances Bean Cobain over whom she's had long-term custody battles.
Nobody's Daughter finds Love exploring greed, vengeance and feminism. She told Rolling Stone that David Bowie's Diamond Dogs, the "good side" of Pink Floyd's The Wall and '80s goth served as references for the album.
It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle it."
The Naughty by Nature hit "O.P.P." doesn't have any curse words, but many oversensitive radio stations played a "clean" version with the word "kitten" edited out, surely the first time that word was censured.
