Wasted

Album: Most Messed Up (2014)
  • This debauched rocker about getting wasted is one of a number of songs on Most Messed Up involving drinking. Lead singer Rhett Miller explained to Here & Now's Robin Young: "On this record maybe more so than in some cases. It's such a reality of life, the question of how bad is drinking and how much horrible stuff in our lives, you know, is it responsible for. I wanted to grapple with that question, and it's something I wonder about in my own life. I feel like I'm on the right side of the line, but maybe a lot of people that aren't on the right side of the line would say that."
