  • Lyrics
  • New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert told Kerrang! magazine February 16, 2008: "When I was younger I went out with this girl, and when I was going out with her she lost her virginity to the guy that hooked us up. When New Found Glory were on tour I broke up with her, and that's why the lyrics go, 'There's no room left here on my back, it was damaged long ago.' 'My friends over you' is a very straightforward, sarcastic, bros before hos line!"
  • New Found Glory finish every show with this song. Gilbert explained to Kerrang!: "It's the anthem. We have to play it last, just because it ends with a bang. It's a fun, party song."
