Dammit

Album: Dude Ranch (1997)
  • Mark Hoppus wrote this in 5 minutes. The song concerns a fictional breakup between Mark and his girlfriend. It is about how his girlfriend breaks up with him and he is going to let her; it is just a part of growing up. >>

  • Kayla from Ione, CaI love this song. Its about breaking up, and how its all apart of growing up. But idk, when they said "a day late" i thought the girl had missed her period, and was prego, but they broke up anyways and stuff like that idk

  • Jim from Ralston, Nesong connects me to my last relationship pretty well. my band covers it at shows.
  • Noah from Madison, WiOften, when they played this song live he'd burst into a random Hip-Hop song during the interlude. I've seen Ice Ice Baby in the video for warped tour '96
  • Matt from Wilmington, OhThis song is great it pretty much sums up most highschool relationships!!!!! timless riffs and lyrics my favorite for ever
  • Catherine from Sydney, AustraliaI was 12 or 13 when I first heard this song, loved it off the bat just for the sound, as i got older this song stayed with me, and the lyrics and meaning changed with me. at one point it was mine and an old boyfriends song which I hated because I knew I would think of him when I heard it, when we broke up it was like that but now it back to my growing song.
  • Spencer from Mcbride, Canadamark sounds so young...
  • Tom from Derby, Englandok firstly, to quote Brian "The song concerns a fictional breakup between Mark and his girlfriend", it was actually written about marks ex girlfriend, and was pretty much none fictional, and tom states this in an interview i have seen, which i think was on the urethra chronicles, but i am not entirely sure
