Holes & Hearts


“Hole Hearted” is a song by the American hard rock group Extreme. The song was released as the fourth and final single and closing track from their successful Pornograffitti album in 1991 and reached #4 on the Billboard Top 100. It also charted at #12 in the UK Singles Chart. The song ends with the sound of a thunderstorm, which closes Pornograffiti, similar to how “Decadence Dance” (the lead single and opening track on Pornograffiti) begins with the same sounds and starts the album.
Although the song’s chart position was lower compared to the band’s previous hit, “More Than Words” (#1 in the US, #2 in the UK), it remains their second-highest charting song overall. Like “More Than Words”, the style of this song is different from the majority of its parent album. The song’s videoclip was shot outside the Boston Centre for the Arts at 551 Tremont Street in Boston (street number clearly seen on many of the pans around the band). The song is excluded from the vinyl LP version of the album.
