The song originated with a simple track cut by the group's drummer Neil Mason and vocalist Jaren Johnston in the studio. When the pair later played it on their bus for their crew during a stop in Las Vegas they all added lyrics stemming from a running tour joke.
"We tried to come up with a lyric and all of us on the bus, band and crew, had this ongoing joke about how it's time to 'crack some cold ones with the boys,'" Mason told Rolling Stone
. "We ran with that and an hour or two later, we had the song finished and drank some beers."
