Songfacts®:

  • DREAMCAR is a supergroup featuring No Doubt's Tom Dumont, Tony Kanal, and Adrian Young plus AFI frontman Davey Havok. This is a track from their eponymous debut album.
  • Havok told Billboard magazine the story behind this song:

    "When I started writing 'All Of The Dead Girls,' it came from the concept of the lyric 'dead girls,' which was informed by my dear friend Josh Richman whom I lived with for many years. I wrote this whole record in his home up in the Hollywood Hills. If you read the lyrics of that song, it's a multilayered self-aware, self-unaware dichotomy. It wasn't a direct quote, but it was a comment about me and those who have an affinity for me or not."
