Album: Bitchcraft (1998)
  • This uptempo track by the Slovenian rock band Strelnikoff is recorded in English (and Anglo-Saxon). In spite of its lyrics, it is not an anti-abortion song, indeed it is precisely the opposite. If the content of the song caused controversy, the CD cover didn't go down too well either: a picture of the Virgin Mary embracing a giant rat.

    The Slovenian church and many individual Catholics demanded not only that the single be banned but that the group be thrown into gaol; the State Attorney received literally thousands of letters to this effect. On March 7, 1998, Archbishop Franc Rode organized a special mass to forgive the blasphemers, though it was not until 2003 that the furor ended when finally a court rejected the indictment. >>
