"WGYG" stands for "Whatever Gets You Going." Speaking on the Songfacts Podcast, John Splithoff said
: "That song definitely has some pep in its step. I co-wrote it with my friends Ben Antelis and Mike Campbell in September or October 2019. It was really nice out so we wanted something that matched the weather we were experiencing that day.
The lyrics for that are just a universal love song - a celebration of life and love and somebody who excites you and you excite them. When we came up with those lyrics, 'Whatever gets you gong,' it reminded me of like a totally dab
lyric, like, 'Hey, whatever gets you going.' It's something that would be fun to walk to or roller skate to or be outside riding a bike. Something that would just feel good to drive to with the sunroof open and the windows down. That's how the song came up."
