Today I'm featuring In This Moment's new one, 'Whore', for 'Crank It or Yank It'.

Before taking offense at the song title, the band want you to know the word 'whore' isn't meant to be taken literally. Here's what they had to say in a press release:

While ‘Whore’ has been getting traction at radio stations across the country, it was more important for the band to create a message that conveys the true intent behind the use of the word. Singer Maria Brink created the term Women Honoring One another Rising Eternally to give new meaning away from the derogatory connotation of the word.

And here's what guitarist Chris Howorth had to say about it:

One of the best things about the song 'Whore' is all the feelings and thoughts that the word alone provokes, and that's great, but at the end of the day, it's just a word. The only power it really has is the power that we give it. It's really just about taking the power back from the word, and when you get past all the controversy of the word, you have a bombastic rock and roll song with crushing guitars and huge drums that will have you screaming whore at the top of your lungs! Listen with your heart!

As far as the song itself, it's not as energetic as their previous singles 'Blood' and 'Adrenalize' but I think it's one BuzzHeads will dig nonetheless. Listen to 'Whore' and weigh in as to whether we should crank it or yank it!
