  • "Retard Girl" is a song by American alternative rock band Hole, written by vocalist and guitarist Courtney Love, and released as the band's début single in April 1990 by Sympathy for the Record Industry. Recorded in March 1990, the single was produced by Love's then-husband, James Moreland. Drawing on the influence of no wave and noise rock bands of the time, the song features distorted guitars, heavy bass, and unpolished, aggressive vocals from Love. The lyrics narrate a girl being bullied on a school playground, also making direct references to Horace's Odes, particularly the Latin verse "velut inter ignis luna minors", which is also inscribed on the back of the single's cover art. The song was written by Love after a group of men allegedly tried to gang rape her while she was working at a Jumbo's Clown Room in Los Angeles. (en)
