Songfacts®:

  • Buckcherry frontman Josh Todd told Loudwire that Aerosmith fans may recognize the spirit of the horn riffs on this soul-influenced track. "We're big fans of [Aerosmith's Pump]," he said. "That was actually Keith's [Nelson, guitar] idea. He's, like, 'Hey man I got this idea for this horn section on 'Tight Pants.' And I'm, like, 'Okay, let's hear it, and if we don't like it we can always take it out.' He put it in, and we would sit around and listen to the rough mixes of that for so long before he actually mixed the record, and we're just, like, 'We can't hear the song without it now.'"
