Album: Notes From The Underground (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Johnny 3 Tears told The Boombox how this song was written and recorded without a break: "When I came up with the idea for the song," he explained, "I had a chorus, so I hit up the producer, went into the studio to lay it down and to get it moving, since I knew we would revisit songs quite a few times, since that's what bands do. We kept moving and making progress, so we stayed up 34 hours. We started it from scratch and finished it in one session, which is tough, since there are a lot of elements. There was no stall. It was written in one fell swoop in a day-and-a-half. We never did it that way before and never want to do it again. I had a four-day hangover after."
