Furtado wrote this as a response to people who criticized her for selling out to the mainstream. She feels she has remained true to herself despite her Pop success.
This was Furtado's third single. It has a different sound than her first two: "I'm Like A Bird" and "Turn Off The Light."
The video was directed by Hype Williams, who previously worked with many hip-hop artists such as Kanye West and Busta Rhymes. The clip opens with Furtado singing in her bedroom before she takes it to the streets with her old school radio. Canadian hip-hop group Swollen Members makes a cameo appearance.
This is Furtado's favorite song on the album. It got a lot of attention when she performed it on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
The official title of this song is "S--t on the Radio (Remember the Days)." The offending word was edited out for radio.
It has long been speculated that the Soundgarden song "Black Hole Sun" came from the name of a sculpture in Seattle, but according to their frontman Chris Cornell the title came from a phrase he misheard on the news. The band's name did come from a sculpture.
