"Fuzz" is slang for "Police," and this song is about an incident when lead singer Gaz Coombes was caught in possession of cannabis - he was 15 at the time. Coombes recalled to The Observer May 6, 2012 that he was in an old Ford Fiesta with a headlight out when he got pulled over. "I stuck the hash down my pants," he said, "but I had it in a little metal tin. I was standing on the pavement, and the tin just went all the way down my trousers and landed on the pavement with a ting. The copper went, 'What's that, son?'"
