  • Lyrics
  • This pop-rock homage to the 1980s samples Duran Duran's 1982 hit single "Hungry Like The Wolf." The message of the song is don't let life get you down.
  • The Isaac Rentz-directed video shows the 5SOF guys in low-paying summer jobs dreaming of one day being rich. The clip was shot by Rentz at a mansion in Pasadena, California, right after he filmed the one for "She's Kinda Hot."

    Rentz told MTV News: "Obviously the song has a lot to say about money, and jobs and struggles that a lot of people experience throughout their lives, but especially when you're young, like how to make money. Do I want to work a job that I don't actually like in order to make money? That's kind of what the video is about."

    "We wanted to show that at the end of the day, the band wanted to just be themselves, but we see them walking away from this really rich lifestyle. They don't need it, it's fun, but it's almost like an amusement park rather than something they really want."
