Earlier today, Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast went on a Twitter rant about Chris Brown's latest single, "Back to Sleep," which has been on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the past 17 weeks. As Cosentino points out, the chorus of the song goes: Just let me rock, fuck you back to sleep. Don't say a word no. Girl, don't you talk. She took to task with the lyrics, saying that they "perpetuate rape culture," and the fact that the song is currently a hit is "disgusting." She clarified that she does not merely have a problem with Chris Brown, but the larger music industry that believed the song's message was appropriate. View Cosentino's tweets below.
