Album: Bad Vibrations (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds a harsh-voiced Jeremy McKinnon commenting on how his generation feels. "If you go on Facebook and see these people with their opinions about the world, it seems like people are getting more and more negative," he explained to Kerrang!. "That's what I've seen at least. We're commentating on the way the world seems to be headed the way people's mindsets are, like everything's out to get them, and it sucks. It sucks."
  • This is the first time A Day To Remember have recorded a political song. "People come to ADTR to forget," said McKinnon. "We struggled over whether to include this."
