Our Lady Peace (feat. Pussy Riot) – Stop Making Stupid People Famous

โ€˜Stop Making Stupid People Famousโ€™. I wonโ€™t mention any names, but we all know them. And it looks like they wonโ€™t go away. Even though theyโ€™re overtly encouraged to do so. I mean, you can find this slogan everywhere. On billboards along the highway, sprayed on walls in the city, printed on T-shirts or mugsโ€ฆ But it hasnโ€™t really helped yet, has it? Hopefully Our Lady Peace can help solve the problemโ€ฆ

With over 5 million albums sold worldwide, OLP is one of the most successful Canadian bands today. This new track only confirms how good they are. Stop Making Stupid People Famous is their first single since the release of their 2018 album Somethingness.

In an interview with website American Songwriter, singer Raine Maida says: โ€œI was just so inspired politically and just felt like โ€˜God, what have we done to ourselves?โ€™. I trace it all the way back to Paris Hilton, not her specifically, but the inception point for reality TV, of building up people, giving them this platform and fame. What is the ROI? What are we getting in return, besides a diversion from reality.โ€

He also explains he didnโ€™t want this song to be some dumb male rock.ย Thatโ€™s why he invited Pussy Riotโ€™s Nadya Tolokonnikovaย as a counter to the songโ€™s subject at hand.

Just like the remainder of Our Lady Peaceโ€™s upcoming 10th album, Stop Making Stupid People Famous was produced by TV On The Radioโ€™s Dave Sitek.
