I'm Designer

Album: Era Vulgaris (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • The line "I'm high class, I'm a whore. Actually both" is inspired by Paris Hilton.
  • Josh Homme wrote this song about the sleaziness and laziness of his generation. In an interview with Ultimate Guitar, Homme said: "It is more of an observation on our society rather than a finger in the face by any means as I love today's generation. There is a lot of opportunity and it is not naïve and it wants to party and wants to be rewarded. It wants to have a good passionate job and it laughs at things that are ridiculous like the Paris Hiltons of the world." >>
