About That Life

Album: About That Life (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Attila's singer Chris 'Fronz' Fronzak explained the song's meaning to Loudwire: "Basically it's just a really fun song, it's really heavy. Lyrically, we're just poking fun at people who revolve their entire lives around money and cracking a joke at people like that — who are really materialistic. Money doesn't really matter, people revolve their lives around it only to lead to failure. It's written like a rap song, basically."
  • About That Life achieved the highest number of first week sales of any Attila album to date with 14,271 units sold. It also attained the band's highest chart position peaking at #22 on the Billboard 200.
