Bowling For Soup lead singer Jaret Reddick
writes their songs and runs the band. Many of his best songs come very quickly, but this one took a while. When we spoke with Jaret in 2010, he explained: "'High School Never Ends' was a two-day process, because it was me and Adam Schlesinger from Fountains of Wayne sitting in a room trying to combine two ideas into one. He really wanted to do a song about tabloids and stuff like that, and I really wanted it to be more. I had the 'high school never ends' line for a couple of years, and I wanted it to be more about life. And so the idea was, Okay, let's combine those things. And I think we were successful at it. But again, his mind works completely different than mine, so it took a couple of days."
