  • This was written by Cevin Soling of The Love Kills Theory, who is also a filmmaker whose works include The War On The War On Drugs and Relax, It's Just Sex. Soling explains: "Bad Company had the song 'Bad Company;' Big Country had the song 'In A Big Country;' Talk Talk had 'Talk Talk;' the Monkees had '(Theme from) The Monkees' and so on... It seemed that the eponymous thing hadn't been done in a while, though. On that level it was tongue in cheek and was made all the more ironic since the subject matter is so serious. I wanted to be able to elucidate the 'General Theory' of the love kills theory so that I wouldn't have to explain it a million times. Many people wrongly presume it's about the pain of a broken heart." (Check out our interview with Cevin Soling.)
