This track was co-written by Hurts along with Swedish producer and songwriter Jonas Quant, who has also worked with Leona Lewis and No Doubt.
The video for the song was directed by renowned filmmaker Naz and shot on March 4, 2013 in Frigiliana, Mollina and Archidona in Málaga (Spain). The controversial clip tells a twisted love story in which singer Theo Hutchcraft goes on a gun rampage.
Fall Out Boy's "The Kids Aren't Alright" song title is not a reference to The Offspring's 1998 single of the same name. It actually alludes to The Who's 1979 rockumentary film called The Kids Are Alright.
"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
