Songfacts®:

  • When Kid Rock performed this meditation on the end of a relationship at DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan on August 13, 2010 he introduced it as a "dark" relationship song that plays like a break-up tune.
  • During an interview with Billboard magazine the comment was made that this dark and somber song has a misleading title. Rock replied laughing: "Audrey Freed and Keith Gattis wrote that and we re-worked it, but it was really their baby. That's age, too. Back in my younger days if a girl really did me wrong and broke my heart I was 'f--k you. F--k you, and get your s--t and get out of my life.' Now I guess I'm a little wiser, maybe more confident in my own skin and it's, 'hey baby, rock on.'"
