Songfacts®:

  • This Rap-Rock crossover features an artist named Lady Cobra spitting rhymes in her respective parts of the track. "There's this band called Mystic Knights of the Cobra, and they come from the same small town we do, around Crockett, California," frontman Billie Joe Armstrong explained to MTV News. "[They have a singer] named Monica Painter, aka Lady Cobra ... and she's a good rapper, so we ended up collaborating with her. She's this punk girl, she's in his wild band that does anything from punk rock to hip-hop, so we collaborated with her and it ended up being great ... this is the first collaboration in a long time. I'm not rapping, though. She's rapping. I'm the hype man."
