  • 3Oh!3 are Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte - two natives of Boulder, Colorado. Motte explained to Emotional Punk that this tune about the glamorizing of the party scene was "one of two songs I co-produced with Benny Blanco, a phenomenal producer who our label hooked us up with. We sat down and started making that beat right when we [met up]. It came out sounding different than the other stuff but we were excited about it."
  • 3Oh!3 became the third act starting with the numeral '3' to post a Top 10 hit in the US. The other two are 38 Special and 3 Doors Down. Three other acts starting with the word 'three' (or related words) have also achieved entries in the Top 10, Three Dog Night, the Three Degrees, and Third Eye Blind. Co-incidentally the same week that this song entered the top tier of the Hot 100, Eminem's "3am" debuted at #32, which was the third song starting with the numeral '3' to reach the Top 40.
  • In the music video, directed by Travis Kopach and Isaac Ravishankara, Foreman and Motte are the last two men on earth, who also happen to be models. We follow them through several shoots that have them prancing in their underwear, wrestling in a high school gym, and acting like prehistoric cavemen.
