Betrayed

Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer

Originally titled "Another Betrayed" Gene came up with the chorus riff as the beginning point for the song. As circulating demos suggest, this song had a strong acoustic emphasis during its writing. According to Gene, "Tommy Thayer helped on this one... About a guy who thinks life has betrayed him... My point of view is: 'Hey you ain't crucified, so what's so bad'" (FKLL Liners). Eric's drum style was inspired by Metallica: "I was thinking of something that Lars (Ulrich) might do" (Dark Light, Spring '90). It's probable that Tommy Thayer plays some acoustic and electric guitars on the recording.
