  • This is the first single from the fifth studio album by American Pop Punk band Motion City Soundtrack. The band parted ways with Columbia Records in early 2011, so they had to finance the record of the LP at their hometown Flower Studios themselves. After finishing the record, MCS gave various labels a preview of the rough mixes, before deciding to go with Epitaph, the label that released the group's first three sets. Go was released on June 12, 2012.
  • Guitarist Josh Cain explained in a web episode how this pop track was slowly pieced together. "We pulled it up and Matt (Taylor, bass)'s like, 'Oh wait, I have this little snippet of it that I recorded you on the bus playing acoustic,' and then I added a bunch of things to it,'" Cain recalled. "He played it for me, and I was like, 'Okay, that's the right energy. That sounds like the song that this should be.'"
