Songfacts®:

  • This song was inspired by conservative talk show Fox and Friends' response to the mass shooting at a Texan church in November 2017. "The host was saying this is a terrible tragedy but at least they died in church," vocalist Mark Arm told Mojo. "A day later I had the lyrics. It's too f---ed to be real."
