Mark Hoppus: "We are all huge fans of the Cure. Having Robert Smith collaborate on a track is a total dream come true for us. We recorded this song in a rather unconventional manner. Travis recorded the kick and snare together, then went back and overdubbed the high hat, then overdubbed the ride cymbal, then overdubbed the ribbon crasher. Tom went in and recorded the acoustic guitars and the electrics. I went in and recorded the bass, using a new discovery for this album, which is a 1973 Fender Bass VI. It is exactly like a guitar, in that it has six strings but is tuned an octave lower. It wasn't amplified. We plugged it directly into the board. Then Roger came in and added keyboards. Tom sand the lead first two lines for the chorus, and then we sent the track to Robert over in England. He recorded his vocals there, and sent the track back to us. We added drum fills and harmonies and added Mellotron. The song was recorded in 4 different studios in 2 different continents and is one of the best on the record."
