  • Lyrics
  • The song refers to frontman Scott Weiland's past history of drug use. Guitarist Dean DeLeo admitted to MusicRadar: "Well, we all know what the bagman brings, don't we? [pauses] It's about Scott's dealings with certain people and, well, it can get pretty dark and bleak out there sometimes."
  • Dean DeLeo commented to MusicRadar on the jingly tune, which contrasts with the dark lyrics: "The yin-yang thing in the band is always there. Musically, I was somewhere else. As the guitarist, it was very interesting painting with these bright colors and using certain Tele tones. Since I was in my teens, I've been such a fan of that cool single-coil sound and playing a lot of jangly chord patterns. I'm pretty happy with my solo - it's a real twister."
