This song describes a young American soldier in a Baghdad firefight thinking about dancing to the Jackson 5 with his girl back home. The moment of nostalgic euphoria gives him something to live for in the general carnage of Iraq.
"It breaks my heart that I live in a land that sent its boys to fight for a rich oil man's greed," the band's Simone Felice told Uncut in 2010. "Friends of mine came back as cold - bloodied murderers. Others I know had their heads or their legs or their arms blown off. So that song, it's a 'Why don't you shake your ass instead of shaking a gun' kind of song about how wild the world out there is."
