Songfacts®:

  • "I'm No Good" was inspired by a "nasty" divorce that 7dayBinge bassist, Todd Harrell, went through. It is about warning your partner that "you're no good." Harrell elaborated during our interview: "That came from a life experience, I guess you could say, from when I went through a pretty nasty divorce a while back, and I was getting told by my ex-wife that 'you're no good.' So we wrote a song about that. And if you listen to the lyrics, you can probably tell where it goes from there. (Laughing) That's definitely a life experience from a nasty divorce years back. I just wrote it down on paper and that's where it came from."
  • The song features on the self-titled debut album from 7dayBinge - a supergroup comprising of Todd Harrell (3 Doors Down) on bass, Jon Nicholson (Muzik Mafia) on guitar and vocals, Kenny Olson (Kid Rock's band) on lead guitar, and Shannon Boone on drums. Harrell told us the record allowed him to explore darker areas in comparison to his other band, 3 Doors Down: "We keep it orientated for kids to listen to in 3 Doors, and 7day is definitely a darker and more party-based band, I guess you could say."
