In this song, the Electric Six stage a dance party at McDonnelzzz, a fast-food place not unlike McDonald's, with the mascot Ronnell McDonnell. The song was inspired by a story in the satirical newspaper The Onion
, with a headline lead singer Dick Valentine remembers as "Downtown Oakland McDonald's Now A Purgatory On Earth." In a Songfacts interview
, he explained: "It was just a picture of a garbage can with a tray sticking out of it with wrappers and stuff, and then all these kind of hip-hop guys just mulling around, and there's a line out the door. We've all been to a McDonald's like that, and I was like, 'That's awesome. I want the party to take place there.'"
