We Came Here To Party

Album: Sorry For Party Rocking (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This track from the deluxe and UK editions of electro hop duo LMFAO's second album, Sorry For Party Rocking was inspired by an altercation with Mitt Romney. The Republican presidential candidate requested LMFAO's Sky Blu to put his seat up on the still-grounded airplane pass and the musician refused because of the Mormon politician's tone. Romney grabbed him by the shoulder, the pair got into an argument and both were whisked off the airplane. Though the song doesn't feature Romney by name, it refers to a church-going politician and succeeds in teasing him.
