  • Lyrics
  • Frontman John Gourley wrote this song after Harry Styles unexpectedly turned up at a friend's birthday party and gifted their mutual pal a 1950s Gibson guitar. "We were all sitting there, the dickheads in the corner, like, 'I could use some rich friends,'" Gourley recalled to Billboard magazine "All the stupid s--t we say made it onto the record."
