"Bruise Violet" is the second single by Babes in Toyland from their album, Fontanelle In an interview, Bjelland was asked if the song "Bruise Violet" was written about Courtney Love, since one of Hole's hits was entitled "Violet". Her response was no, firstly because "Violet" was released two years later (though Hole had been playing the song regularly since 1991), and secondly that Violet was a muse that both she and Love wrote about. It was released on purple 7" vinyl[1] and features early or not produced versions of the song.
