Songfacts®:

  • Like many Biffy Clyro tunes, this song has a cryptic title. It was named after a young people's care centre in Scotland called Kibble, though it's not actually about that and the secure unit doesn't appear in the lyrics.
  • Frontman Simon Neil told Kerrang: "On the bridge section we sang in as many different accents as we could to make it sound as so people from all across the world were singing on it!"
