  • Drummer Ed Graham's bandmates penned this breakup song in an attempt to cheer him up after he had his heart broken. Said Justin Hawkins: "Poor kid. I've never seen him like that. I don't think he was too thrilled at having a song written about him, but this was our way of telling him he's a drummer in a rock band, there are thousands of girls out there!"
  • So how did Graham react? He said: "They sent it to me by email to gauge my reaction. I thought 'I know what that's about. My friends will. And her.' I didn't like it at first. But I tried to look at it objectively."
