We're So Starving

Album: Pretty. Odd (2008)
  • Drummer Spencer Smith told Live Daily about this song: "It's the first song on the record. It's kind of an intro track. It's really, probably, lyrically the most basic song on the record for the complete reason of just blatantly being very forward with what we were trying to say. As soon as we got off tour about a year ago, we were all tired and looking forward to having a break, and it was getting close to being off for seven or eight months. We were getting tired of sitting at home. We were writing songs and getting ready to record, but our fans had asked a lot [about] when we were going to have a new record out. For us, we wrote that song in about 45 minutes, me, Jon [Walker bassist/keyboardist] and Ryan [Ross guitarist], just being sarcastic in the sense that Jon's got the loudest vocal part when we say the line 'We're still the same band.' He wasn't in the band the whole time. I guess we're representing where the band is going to stay. We're not going to have anybody different on the next record. We're looking forward to doing exactly what we got to do for the first time over the last two-and-a-half years."
  • Jon Walker told VH1 about this track: "We wrote it in Ryan's kitchen at his old house. We were all standing around. He had the line - 'You don't have to worry because we're still the same band.' We all sing [on that one]."
