This song was written about the drummer from Bayside, John "Beatz" Hollohan, who died when Bayside, Aiden, Silverstein, and Hawthorne Heights were on the "Never Sleep Again" tour. Bayside's van hit an ice patch and flipped over, killing Hollohan. The entire song is saying that they won't forget how great of a person he was. (thanks, DJ - Royal Oak, MI)

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
