Songfacts®:

  • OK Go wrote and recorded this for the movie Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Bassist-vocalist Tim Nordwind explained to Jam! Music: "Steve Pink, who's the director of HTTM, had called us about seven or eight months ago and said we're doing HTTM2, and 'We're looking for a song for the end credits, and we really want to base it off of this song that the guys (in the movie) sing, that they made up on the spot for one of the scenes.' We thought it was particularly funny because we are such nerds."
