One of the most popular songs by the Michigan electro-metal band I See Stars, "Murder Mitten" is about the mother, Debra, of the band's lead singer Devin Oliver and his brother, drummer Andrew Oliver. An alcoholic who lost her job because of her drinking, she made life miserable for her family, which fueled their ambition:Any risk, I'll take it
Or fade away in this suburban wasteland
And watch all your plans sink right under your feet
In our interview with Devin Oliver
, he said: "She's had an alcohol problem her whole life, but at this moment, she went through her first stage of rehab, and she was in recovery. So as sad a song as it is, it's talking about the darkness, because we were at the light at the end of the tunnel - we were able to channel that darkness into song."
