High-Fiving MF

Album: Good As Dead (1996)

Songfacts®:

  • There's a certain kind of bro that Local H noticed at their shows - the guy who tries to take over the mosh pit and high five everybody. Often 'roided out and with a terrible haircut, he has terrible taste in clothes and music, but for some reason likes their band. When we asked lead singer Scott Lucas what the song is about, he replied: "Assholes."
  • Not surprisingly, this song got very little airplay, although it was released as a promotional single in the form of the "Kinda Clean Short Edit" and the "Squeaky Clean Short Edit." The hit from the album was the more radio-friendly "Bound For The Floor."
