  • The song's title is a reference to a lodge and bowling team that Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble belonged to on the '60s cartoon TV show The Flintstones.
  • In a video interview, lyricist Pete Wentz told the New Musical Express that the lyric "detox, just to retox" is "what everybody goes through, yeah, gotta drink bottle of water so I can go back out tonight."

  • Delphine from IrelandDetox Just To Retox for me means how I had to boycott Fall Out Boy to concentrate on my exams (cause if I listened to them in the morning I couldn't work after, but if I did it in the evening I wouldn't sleep!) It was a tough few weeks, but I took comfort in the knowledge that right after I would have a month of freedom to retox as much as I wanted :D
