Janson told the story of the song to The Boot
"It was Mark's title, and that title is everything in that song. As soon as he threw it out, it was like, 'Okay, we're definitely going to write that. The question is, how do we write it? How do we make it interesting and keep it interesting?'
Structurally, that song is pretty weird: It's got a post-chorus. We wrote the first verse, and then we wrote a little pre-chorus section, and then we wrote a chorus section, and then we wrote a post-chorus section. We never wrote another verse; we just repeated the pre-chorus section, the chorus, and then the post-chorus. That's all mind-numbing to people who are going to hear that or read that, because they don't even know what that means, but to me, it was pretty cool the way that song came together."
