INHABITED ADDRESSES CONTROVERSY OVER "HUSH" REMIX


NEWS SOURCE: Inhabited, a Jesusfreakhideout.com report
May 10, 2008

Inhabited At the end of April, 7 Spin recording artists Inhabited released for download an "uncensored" remix of their hit pop song "Hush," complete with controversial lyrics. In the lyrics, the band states "turn down the guitars and the snare a little bit / not gonna listen / wonít make sucky music so my records will play" and "They said just sing these words and youíll sound real nice / Something more like Barlow Girl, do something right / Ainít got nothing against Ďem but it just ainít me." Obviously, this caused a bit of a stir and so just today, the band has issued an explanation of their original intent...

"So, there seems to be a bit of confusion about the Hush Remix...First of all Inhabited believes that everyones art is their own creation, and we should respect each others art. When we referenced Barlow Girl in the song it wasn't to bash or put them down, it just says our art is a different style. They have achieved great success, and we would wish them no less! It takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice to be successful in the music business! Their success speaks for itself.

The song also never intended to bring Fervent's character into question. Likewise, their success speaks for itself. We had some differences in musical views, thus the reason we parted ways, but they supported the ministry of Inhabited, and still do. We are both about the bigger picture which is spreading Hope anywhere music will take us.

Lastly, if the intent had been to bash or offend anyone it would not have been done with what we thought was a fun, cool remix. We have always been straightforward with our lyrics and always will be. That has caused some up and downs along the way, but we have remained true to write and sing the songs we LOVE.

Hope that clears up some of the confusion!
LIVE. LOVE. ROCK.
:)"

Below are the full lyrics for "Hush (Remix)"

Written by Marcus Acker and Sara Delight

Turn down the guitar
and the snare a little bit
Turn down the guitar and the snare

We're gonna beat that system in a round about way
Won't make sucky music so my records will play
Thereís a whole new breed of us coming up
So it looks to me like your straight out of luck
Turn down the guitars and the snare a little bit
Put some strings and violins make an orchestra of it
It's a dollar to you and dishonor to me so can meet your quota this week

Where my brothers at that sick and tired
Of the same old lies

Not gonna listen
Turn down the guitars and the snare a little bit
Not gonna listen
Wonít make sucky music so my records will play
Not gonna listen
Iím saying goodbye
Not gonna listen cuz youíre taking, youíre taking my life

They said just sing these words and youíll sound real nice
Something more like Barlow Girl, do something right
Ainít got nothing against Ďem but it just ainít me
No Iím gonna change the world, Iíll make history
So you can chew me up and spit me out
But Iíll survive no weíll never see eye to eye
In this life

My daddy always told me to stay true to the music
Better keep it in your heart
Donít you ever lose it
Cuzí some people are going to try to take it away
Iíll never lose my soul
Iím paving the way
