This bonus track from Fall Out Boy vocalist Patrick Stump's debut solo album was inspired by Conan O'Brien on his last episode of The Tonight Show
. Stump explained to Spin
magazine: "[Conan O'Brien] spoke to how cynical our generation is and how unfortunate that is. That's what 'Mad at Nothing' is about. I feel very strongly that we need to be a bit positive. It's too bad that people relate to each other with sarcasm and misery - but that's what we know."
Stump added that the Truant Wave
track "Love, Selfish Love
" explores the same theme.
