  1. Child Psychology

    Child Psychology is a 1998 single by Black Box Recorder. It was featured on the album England Made Me. The song features a mixture of spoken word and a sung chorus. The spoken word tells of various incidents from childhood, including refusing to talk, expulsion from school for disruptive behaviour and parents arguing at Christmas. The sung chorus featured a highly controversial line, "Life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it". This led to the song being banned on UK radio and MTV. However, the sardonic nature of the song also gained praise from critics, with one calling it 'refreshingly blunt'. The chorus was featured in a series 3 episode of Monkey Dust and in the season 1 episode 19 of the Gilmore Girls entitled "Emily in Wonderland", and consequently featured on the Gilmore Girls soundtrack, Our Little Corner of the World. The song was released in the US shortly after the Columbine massacre, this led to the line 'Kill Yourself' being played backwards on the US release.
