In our 2013 interview with singer and guitarist Danko Jones
(like Alice Cooper, the band and lead singer have the same name), he said: "The song is very lyrically misleading. It's about how I don't like sunny days, I don't like what people consider beautiful days. I was staring outside of the window watching the first good day of the year where the weather was good, especially up in Canada. People were walking around in shorts and T-shirts, and it annoyed me. So I just wrote this song, very Funkadelic influenced. The name of the Funkadelic song I think was 'Red Hot Mama,' but just the way the verses are, that's what started the riff. And then after that, I wanted it to sound like it's an ode to the sunshine and the beautiful day, and everybody loves a beautiful day. But really it's not. It was about how I like staying inside and I like it when the sun goes down and I like it when it's overcast. But I didn't really explain it very well in the song. I should have, I guess. But anyways, that's what that song's about. And that's how it came about."
