On Thursday, RollingStone.com got the honor of premiering the new video for “The One that You Hated,” the debut single from former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler’s new band, Adler. The video features the band performing the track while scantily-clad, heavily tattooed women dance around them.
“The lyrics are about two people that are no good for each other, but for whatever reason won’t break up,” frontman Jacob Bunton tells Rolling Stone about the song. “Maybe it’s the sex, maybe it’s the convenience, maybe they’re just scared to move on and start over, but a lot of people seem to be attracted to the people that they hate. Love and hate are intimately linked within the human brain.”
Bunton added that former GN’R guitarist Slash — who makes a guest appearance on the forthcoming album — got to check out the track. “One night Slash was at the studio and we played him a couple of the songs,” says Bunton. “When this song started playing, he was grinning ear to ear, so we knew either it’s a kick-ass song or it’s so bad we’re making him laugh.”
Adler’s as-yet-untitled debut album is expected to hit stores sometime this year.
