  • Lyrics
  • This song is about how life can throw so much at you, but you have to work through your problems and not obsess on them. In the line, "Got a job got a life got a 4 door and a faithless wife" the singer admits he has problems, but in the next line, "Got those nice copper pipes, got an ex, got a room for the night," he finds solutions to his problems and looks on the bright side. >>

  • Frontman Damian Kulash recalled to Spin magazine: "When I wrote 'Get Over It' I remember thinking that I wanted to write a stadium rock anthem because there wasn't enough of those anymore."
  • This was the first single released by OK Go from their self-titled debut album. It was their breakthrough in the UK peaking at #21 on the singles chart. In the US this was released as a promotional single.
