References to insects often appear in music lyrics and music videos. Seldom is the imagery pretty. The most positive imagery is comparison of an uncommitted love to butterflies or fireflies that flit around. The imagery goes downhill from there, “You ain’t nothin’ but a cockroach.” summarizes the scorn for the cheating lover.
The featured video is the Gnarls Barkley cover of the song Gone Daddy Gone (Gordon Gano, Violent Femmes). The video uses insect imagery to portray the rejected lover as an insect pest, best eliminated with a good dose of pesticide.
