Songfacts®:

  • American punk rock band A Rocket to the Moon was founded during 2006 in Braintree, Massachusetts by vocalist Nick Santino as a musical experiment. He had formerly fronted the local bands The Bad Year and The Midway Class. After using local musicians to begin with, Santino eventually recruited guitarist Justin Richards, bassist Eric Halvorsen, and drummer Andrew Cook as full time members of the band.
  • A Rocket To the Moon released their first full-length album, On Your Side on October 13, 2009. This is the second single to be taken from the LP.
  • "Like" was the band's first single to enter the Billboard Hot 100.
  • The band explained to Artist Direct that this is a "good old-fashioned break up song," and it explores that "difficult yet crucial process of growing up and eventually realizing that while the break up caused you pain, in the end, it was for the best."
  • The song's music video was filmed in Santa Barbara, California.
