  • At 16 seconds long, this driving track is the first short joke song blink-182 put out since "Happy Holidays You Bastard" and "F--k a Dog" from 2001's Take Off Your Pants And Jacket.
  • Co-vocalist Mark Hoppus had had the tune in his back pocket for years. He told NME: "Travis (Barker) had come in to play drums on another song and John (Feldman, producer) said: 'I'm going to play you this song - it's four counts in and then you wrap it up.' The song ended, and Travis goes: 'Is that really it?'"
