Ian from Lakeville, MaYeah I think Michael is right, I've heard several times that this is about Mike McCready.
Michael from Perth, AustraliaI thought this was written about Mike McCready.
Veddie Edder from Seattle (coincidence), -You're right, Pete. Not a lot of people liked this album that much, but I loved it, and this song is one of the better ones for sure.
Pete from Melbourne, AustraliaI can't believe that I am the first to comment on this ball-tearer of a track. The Pearlers wrote this about their old drummer, Jack Irons and his battle with drug addiction.
It is a classic hard-edged rock track that just explodes. 10/10
Fall Out Boy's "The Kids Aren't Alright" song title is not a reference to The Offspring's 1998 single of the same name. It actually alludes to The Who's 1979 rockumentary film called The Kids Are Alright.
