Songfacts®:

  • This is about lead singer Deryck Whibley's parents. His parents wanted him to be just another normal person, but Deryck wanted to do what he loved. At concerts, he explained that this was about his parents and about being a teenager, doing whatever the hell YOU want, and not giving a damn about what other people think about it. >>

  • The song's music video was directed by Marc Klasfeld, who has also worked with the likes of Katy Perry, Jay-Z, and Foo Fighters. Deryck Whibley told Kerrang! regarding the clip: "There was no concept - the only idea for the video was literally to show up, play and film a bunch of stupid s--t! We had to start at 6 a.m. and be really energetic. So we turned to booze, which always helps, and just spent the day having fun! There was so much jumping in that video, by the second day we couldn't walk! The crew had to put this icy cream on our legs to help and it smelled so bad."
