This is a track from No Chocolate Cake
, the fifth full-length album by American pop rock band the Gin Blossoms. Front man Robin Wilson told Alternative Addiction
this song was inspired by a Finnish group. He explained: "I'm emotionally attached to one of my songs titled, 'Wave Bye-Bye.' I'm proud of that. I set out to write the saddest possible thing I could. I had been listening to a group called HIM, they're a metal band from Finland. They're a global source, they're huge. Their T-shirts are for sale at Hot Topic. I really got into the group. I guess I was caught up in their world and decided to try and write something to write really sad and I thought it would cool to get the girls at Hot Topic to like one of our tunes."
