Buckcherry lead singer Josh Todd told Q magazine: "When I first wrote frontside it definitely had sexual overtones for me. But the songs are constantly changing and taking in a different meaning. It's about a girl who's got a boyfriend - he's out cold on the couch and you're right there with his girlfriend. And then you're outta there because you gotta leave for the next town. When I sing it now, I think about skateboarding. When you surf or skate its either frontside or backside."
