Skunk Anansie Drop Sleazy New Single “Can’t Take You Anywhere”


We fucking love Skunk Anansie over here at MetalSucks. Maybe it’s because of how awesome and unusual they were during the often-homogenous nu-metal years we grew up in, always making music that was a little left-field and off-center from what everyone else were doing (plus, the track that vocalist Skin did with Sevendust is an eternal banger). Now, Skunk Anansie have dropped their second new single of 2022, and unlike the previous one, it utilizes a sleazy, pop-rock kind of vibe.

The track is called “Can’t Take You Anywhere,” and has a real smeared-lipstick feeling to it. It never goes full pop-rock, though the track’s shimmer and bounce definitely have traditional pop elements to them. Overall, the band it most reminds us of is Garbage — kind of a personal shitshow, but looking beautiful doing it.

From Skin:

“This track is a double-edged sword. We all have that one friend that we love but is a total embarrassment to us, a mate that has no off button and no filter. So if they aren’t losing their phone/keys/coat, they’re saying some stuff that will defo get you cancelled by all your other mates. This song is about how polarised the world is now, and how careful you need to be. It’s about dealing with the new world order of friendship, as never before have I had great long term friends develop completely opposing views to mine. It’s about having to navigate and understand people, keeping the love and respect but also standing firm in your opinions.”
