Rape Is Rape, Even If The Rapist Is In A Band That You Like
Just because someone is in a band that you like doesn’t mean they are incapable of sexual assault. Too often when men in bands are accused of assault the victim is called a liar, blamed, and is ostracised. This song is not commenting on any particular person or incident. We believe that the problem is widespread – almost all of the women we know in the punk scene have experienced some levels of sexual assault or violence, it is time that the problem is taken seriously and we get rid of the culture that gives men in bands a free pass to act how they want with no consequences.

We made a video for a song off our new mini album on Damaged Goods Records
It was filmed by all three of Rabies Babies and our lockdown friends, and it’s our take on the lockdown craziness – spending weekends making plasticine monsters instead of going to gigs, enjoying the empty streets of Dalston, being sad at the shut up playgrounds, binge watching puffins on webcams, sometimes feeling miserable and just wanting to cry and stay in bed, going stir crazy and having to have a dance or cycle or shout to get it all out. We hope this will bring a smile to you and you have fun singing along.
Lots of love from Rabies Babies.
