Songfacts®:

  • Drummer Shay Haley told MTV News that the track was inspired by a hard-partying night in Europe. "We were in Monaco, and we were looking around, and we were just seeing how people were having a great time and you couldn't tell them s--t. It was like 5 in the morning, and you would have thought it was like 1," he said. "People were partying just as hard, so we were like, 'Whoa.'"
