Album: A Fine Mess (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Voegele explained in publicity materials this gritty, hard-driving number: "It's about the different emotions you experience after finding out somebody you're close to has been feeding you a story that isn't true. You end up feeling stupid and pissed off and I guess I dealt with those emotions by putting on some black boots, messing up my hair, turning up the distortion on my guitar and getting in front of the mic to pretend I was Chrissie Hynde. That was pretty much all it took."
  • The song's music video features Kate with the seventh season Dancing With The Stars champion, Derek Hough. It was shot in Los Angeles with director Frank Borin (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eminem). Kate commented in People magazine: "The video was so much fun to shoot and Derek was awesome. Great dancer, great musician, great kisser. That guy's got a few things going for him!"
