Frankie Teardrop is loosely based off the song of the same name by 1970's proto-punk band 'SUICIDE'.
"I remember listening to the song at the tender age of 14 and being absolutely petrified, the screams sent shivers down my spine. I knew at that moment, I wanted to make something that resonated with the horrific story" - Timothy N. Heinrich
