  • This song describes the scene at a bustling donut shot in Brooklyn. Hungry Hamed's was a real place the band frequented. "It's a Dunkin Donuts now or something like that," lead singer Chris Barron said in a 2017 Songfacts interview. "It's on, I want to say 4th Avenue and three blocks from Bergen Street. It's 4th Avenue, just off of Flatbush."
