  • Lyrics
  • The track was written by Steel Panther guitarist Satchel. Asked by Artist Direct what the story of the song was, drummer Stix Zadinia replied: "Satchel wrote that. He writes most of the songs. The songs can come from anywhere. We could be jamming at a soundcheck with a drum groove, and he'll start riffing. We'll go, 'Hold on, that's bitching!' We'll record it on our iPhones and take it home."

    "I can't remember if that was a soundcheck riff or Satchel came up with it," Stix continued. "When it comes to recording the lyrics, all four of us are there for all of the vocal sessions because everybody chips in at the end of the day. Whoever has the line that we all feel is the best to say what we're trying to say will go down"

    "At the end of the day, there's not one song that goes out that all four of us aren't totally stoked on," he added. "We're all there for all of the vocal sessions. Actually, everyone is there for almost all of the sessions except for the guitar. Satchel will be there for the bass. I won't usually go for the bass because I'm too busy getting high [Laughs]. Everybody has to put his approval on the mixes though too."
