Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from No Cities to Love, Sleater-Kinney's first album after a decade long hiatus. Corin Tucker wrote the song to capture the struggle and triumph of reviving the band. She explained to NME: "That is definitely written with the idea of the moment when we were talking about being a band again. And what an incredible opportunity and a giant challenge that is to me - being a mom and trying to have this really intense career."
