First Aid Kit - You Are The Problem Here (Live)



The song was first released last year for International Women's Day (with proceeds going to Women for Women International) alongside this message:

"You Are the Problem Here" isn't a typical First Aid Kit-song. It's angry and direct. It's a song written out of despair. After reading about yet another rape case where the perpetrator was handed a sentence which did not at all reflect the severity of his crime we felt upset and vengeful. We were, and are, sick of living in a society where the victims of rape are often blamed for the horrible thing that has been done to them. Our message is clear and should not be controversial in the least: if you rape, you are the problem. Alcohol is not the problem. So called "youth culture" is not the problem. You are. And you always have a choice.

For this year's IWD, the girls have posted a live version to their YouTube channel. Support the song here. And don't forget to stream/buy 'Ruins'!
