Biffy vocalist Simon Neil explained the track's meaning to DIY magazine: "The song's about certain things that you require, or are addicted to, in your life to get through things and it's about trying to break free of those chains."
Simon Neil told NME he considers this to be one of the best tunes he's written. He said it was "one of those songs that just landed in my lap."
"We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" by Taylor Swift earned an entry in the 2014 edition of the Guinness Book of Records for the fastest-selling digital single. It reached the #1 spot on iTunes just 50 minutes after its release.
