"Eyesore" is a song written by Janus. It is the 5th track from their third album Red Right Return, and was the first single released from the album in 2009. An acoustic version was exclusively released on KUPDs Acoustic 2010 compilation album.[1]


In an interview David Scotney said, “Eyesore” is about listening to your own voice, not letting others influence your thoughts and decisions, and being true to yourself. The title, “Eyesore,” is meant to define that moment of awareness where you realize the consequence of not following your own voice.[2]
