  • Fishbone had collapsed and re-formed a few times by the time this song was released on their 2000 album Psychotic Friends Nuttwerx. They still had three original members: frontman Angelo Moore, horn player Walter Kibby, and bass player John Norwood Fisher. Moore wrote the song with three outside writers: Bridget Benante, David Baerwald, and Steven Lindsey.
