This is a track from Oklahoma rock band Hinder's third studio album. Frontman Austin Winkler explained in an interview with Noisecreep
that the song acts as a companion tune of sorts to the album's title track
. "'2 Sides of Me' is about having one side where you're a gentleman and then you do that extra shot and maybe you're not that gentleman anymore," he said. "'All American Nightmare' is about the middle guy, who can talk you into anything and maybe also talk his way into your mama's panties."
