Sign in. For his latest role in Don't Let Go David Oyelowo goes to a dark place and embraces fear in the latest Blumhouse film. Watch now. Scott dated a woman who was gang raped and he wrote this song showing how creepy the power of rape is.
The song spawned a music video which received moderate rotation on MTV at the height of the early s grunge music scene and is still heard on most rock radio stations today. Contrary to popular belief, singer Scott Weiland wrote the song as an anti-rape statement, not as a song simply about sex, as he has stated:""This song is really not about sex at all. It's about control, violence and abuse of power. Over time, "Sex Type Thing" became the band's traditional closer at live shows. During some performances from until STP's break-up, the band would extend the song's bridge into a jam session where Weiland would strip naked in front of the audience and then wrap his lower body in an American flag.
