"Reject" letter revealed

49 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

So, as some of you may know, the song Reject (Nimrod) was inspired by a letter that a mom wrote to Billie Joe after hearing Insomniac, that she got her son as a gift. I was searching the interwebs and part of the letter is now online.

Yeah this is old news, but it's always an interesting piece to discuss! I really can't stand parents like this woman.

Billie said it perfectly, if doing your job as a parent, your kids won't get their hands on "inappropriate" material.

It's not the artists job to worry about who will be consuming their work.

Haha. This isn't news... it's olds. :lol:

Still cracks me up every time I read it though.

I wonder if that woman sill has the letter. I would pay big bucks for it.

It may even have some of Billie's dead skin cells on it :eyebrows:

Well, it is old information. But whenever it comes up under discussion, there are always people who have never heard of/read it. I think it's interesting and fun to see stuff discussed again sometimes.
