Rhett Miller sings here about the mystique of being a Rock Star and how it isn't all it's cut out to be. "Rock stars were once such mythical creatures, up there with presidents, playmates and preachers," he explained to to Here & Now's Robin Young. "The idea behind this song was to break all these rules that I've tried so hard to follow for all these years. I have wanted songs to be universal and not specific about me or my life or this weird job, and it just occurred to me this is the 20th anniversary of the first album of my band, and a lot of the people in the audience every night, when I look out, are literally younger than my career. And I just thought, if I'm ever going to address this as someone who's experienced it longer than most people get to, now seems like the time, because I still get to rock and I love to rock."
