Songfacts®:

  • The lead single from DMB's Crash, this funky number examines greed and wastefulness, when too much is never enough. Matthews explained to The Boston Globe: "It's where excess has taken over, where your appetite has taken control of the narrator. As opposed to enjoying life, it's devouring life, which seems to be a common theme in the world - certainly in America, where we do just that - eat too much, drink too much, consume too much, and preach too much."
  • The band performed this, along with "So Much To Say," on Saturday Night Live on April 20, 1996.
  • This peaked at #9 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and #5 on the Alternative Songs chart.
