Thou Shalt Not

Gene Simmons, Jesse Damon

Gene's ode to "Don't point your finger at me." According to Gene the song is essentially, "'My Generation' meets 'go fuck yourself" (Metal Hammer 5/92). This song would be co-written by Jesse Damon from the band Silent Rage who was signed to $immons Records. Jesse recalled, "When it came time for writing the lyrics, the story line used was written with some real life experience about Gene, and some biblical theme to coincide with the rest of songs on 'Revenge.' The music was written first, from several writing sessions I had with Gene, over at his house" (JG). However, the song's subject matter is not the direct result of any overall experience of Gene. Jesse Damon sang backing vocals on the album recording.
