Album: Off With Their Heads (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Singer Ricky Wilson explained to The Sun October 17, 2008 that this song is not the sound of "a band stuck in a rut just going for the Kaiser Chiefs fans' jugular. It shows our carefree nature."
  • Kaiser Chief bassist Simon Rix told Drowned In Sound that this song, "features five part harmonies in the verses which is the first time we've done that." He added: "It starts the album and it's the only place we thought it could go, first of all because it's a big exciting start and also because we see it as the intro to the album."
