I Heard You

Album: Good Charlotte (2000)

Songfacts®:

  • This is about a boy who doesn't belong with "The cool kids." He asks out the popular girl who gives him a harsh rejection. She thinks that he really looks up to her friends for being "so cool" but really he just thinks they're just a bunch up stuck-up snobs. The song makes the point that the "cool kids" are not really that cool in other people's eyes.

  • Bobsaget from Santee, CaActually i agree with both of u as quoted from thier song little thing they say " like the time that girl broke up with me cuz i wasnt cool enough" but in the song he does say that they're just a bunch up stuck-up snobs.
