Sum 41 vocalist Deryck Whibley explained the song is "sort of about a guy who hates everything, very bitter person who kind of hates the world. He's against the world."
Whibley told MTV News the track is also about the complacency of pop culture that was contemporary in 2002, the year the song was released. "We depend so much on new technology to make sure that we don't have to do anything," he explained. "Everything's being laid out so we can sit at home and do nothing and never leave our homes. You can order all your groceries from the computer. You can do anything you want. You can just sit there and become fatter. And I think that's bad."
