In this song Voegele disavows people's perception of her as an eternal good girl. She explained in publicity materials: "The whole idea that you have to be tortured to be an artist, it drove me nuts. That frustration is what the song is about, where I say, maybe I didn't have a coke addiction or spend my nights getting hammered and dancing on tables, but I'm not this untouchable perfect girl on a pedestal."
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
