This is a track from former White Zombie frontman Rob Zombie's 4th solo album, Hellbilly Deluxe 2 or to give it its full title, Hellbilly Deluxe 2: Noble Jackals, Penny Dreadfuls and the Systematic Dehumanization of Cool.
The record acts as a companion piece to Zombie's debut solo set Hellbilly Deluxe. He explained to MTV News: "Making a sequel to a record came up as an idea a couple of years ago. "I thought, 'That could be kind of cool.' You do it for movies. It's so commonplace. But as I was making 'Halloween II, I thought it might be a little weird so I shelved the idea. But then once we finished the record I listened to it, and the way the record was made, it kind of had the spirit and the vibe of Hellbilly Deluxe. If any record is ever gonna get called that, this would be a good one."
Rob Zombie explained the meaning of the song title to MSN Music: "'Sick bubblegum'" was a phrase I heard my friend Johnny Ramone use on some VH1 special about the history of punk. They asked him how he'd describe the Ramones' music, and he said 'bubblegum,' but then he paused and said, 'Sick bubblegum.' I really liked that, so I wrote it down and that's where the song came from."
"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
