Songfacts®:

  • This was the second single from the band's debut album, Adrenaline.
  • "We wrote 'Bored' in half an hour," guitarist Stephen Carpenter said. "It came out of nowhere!"
  • After the album was released, Chino commented on the exasperating recording session: "Sometimes I'd be in the studio and get frustrated. I think it was on 'Bored,' that part where it comes in with 'GET BORED.' That part, I could not do. I couldn't come in at the right time. I was just so out of it. I was trying to fix that part because it just didn't sound right. I was trippin' and just about crying. I was like, I can't do this Terry [producer Terry Date], I cant do it! He was like, 'It's cool, you can do it. If you want, go home and chill and we'll do it tomorrow.' He didn't let me get too frustrated after that. I wanted to quit a couple of times, just because I was so frickin' nervous. I felt like I was failing sometimes." >>
