Songfacts®:

  • In a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" session, blink-182 bass player Mark Hoppus explained that this song was not about his hair. "'Fighting the Gravity' is about a night a long time ago where someone put something in my drink," said Hoppus. "I had no idea what was happening and thought I was dying. The whole world felt malicious and angry. I could barely move from the immensity of the earth's pull. I got into my girlfriend's car and said, 'please, just drive.' no me gusta."
