Had a break for a few days and just heard this and it appears it's not been used before:

"Some people sleep all alone every night
Instead of taking a lover to bed"

Time for a clue:

This band has a tenuous? connection with the Columbine massacre and this track is in a genre very unlike the majority of the band's music.

Hope that helps.

:lol: :lol: Another clue then :
The video of the track features an actor from the "Clockwork Orange".

A more cryptic clue now:
The band could be said to comply with one of the principal COVID protocols.

Paul, the only actor that I can think of who starred in ' Clockwork Orange ', is Malcolm McDowell.

Guessing here - as some groups like to dress up, would the covid protocol be WEAR A MASK?

No idea who they are though.

I'm at a loss here. The only actors I can think of (without Googling) are Malcolm McDowell and Warren Clarke...which helps not at all.
Re masks -Slipknot??

Yes to Slipknot, and to Malcolm McDowell - well done Plummy.

I think I may as well put you all out of your misery - the song is "Snuff" by Slipknot - Malcolm McDowell features in the video.

Plummy, over to you.

On the radio as I type and in my view, this is a well known song as it gets played regularly...

Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton maybe? -

Those lyrics sound very C&W to me.

Negatory Mr G. Good guess though - it is an American duet.
