Say Anything’s Max Bemis retires “Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too” for future
Say Anything frontman Max Bemis has stated that he will be "retiring" the song "Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too" for the "foreseeable future" in light of the many allegations of sexual abuse across the entertainment industry.
Bemis took to Twitter to explain the situation, noting that the song is "mostly a sarcastic caricature" of someone he's never been and that the tune is "no longer appropriate" during the current crisis and climate we live in currently regarding consent, sexual abuse, and the other difficult and delicate situations individuals have been coming out with over the last few weeks.
The Say Anything songsmith discussed the "scene" and its abundance of problematic behaviors, denouncing them and urging readers to respect women, "ourselves," and (sic) "GIVE A SHIT."
The song will apparently be out of the band's rotation for the coming days, and is Bemis's way of showing respect to the current climate in the entertainment industry. If you're worried about missing out on your favorite Say Anything songs, there are still plenty out there that will be played in the band's upcoming performances. It looks like it's just time for this one to take a breather.
