@!#?@! (swear words)

Album: My Dinosaur Life (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Keyboardist Jesse Johnson told Alternative Press about this foul-mouthed romp: "Otherwise known as 'Motherf---ers,' this is a really catchy tune. Right off the bat, we felt like it was an awesome song in the vein of Weezer - whom we all listened to as high school students. Justin has a habit of writing lyrics that just fill the space of the melody while we are writing. He usually finds different words for the final version. That's where all the cussing came from. It wasn't supposed to be in the final version of the song, but it just got stuck in all of our heads. We can all connect with the nerdiness of the song since we are all quite nerdy still. When we thought about song titles, we didn't want to put curse words on the back of our album. That's why we went with '@!#?@!,' which is an actual quote from the video game Q*bert. Nerds!"
