No Homo

Album: Turtleneck & Chain (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds The Lonely Island addressing hip-hop's machismo, which often comes out as homophobia. Andy Samberg explained to Spinner UK: "'No homo' has become so ubiquitous a phrase that we felt like it had to be addressed. We saw little kids saying it, like, 'Wanna come over and play, no homo' and it just seemed ridiculous so we wrote the song. We hope the reaction to it is laughter. That's always the desired reaction."
