This was the first single off the Foo's second album. It deals with being used and trapped in a relationship.
Dave Grohl directed the video himself. At the beginning, the elevator music is a muzak version of the song "Big Me
," from the Foo Fighters' debut. (thanks, Matt - Millbrae, CA, for above 2)
The screamy bridge of this song is almost impossible for Dave Grohl to sing live. The bridge on the CD was yelled all in one breath.

Grohl told Mojo magazine January 2010 this is about the disintegration of his marriage to photographer Jennifer Youngblood: "It's about living with someone and feeling like you're living in a fu--ing cell. And then I wound up getting a divorce," he said.
