Album: Build and Burn (2008)
  • songfacts ®
  • The lyrics of this song likely refer to former First Lady Laura Bush, and the actions of her husband, President George W. Bush. The timing of this album's release (near the end of Bush's time in office), as well as the lyrical content, would seem to affirm this theory. The Loved Ones frontman Dave Hause tells us he's a fan of The Clash, whose influence you can hear on this track.
  • The album which houses this track, Build and Burn, was was produced by Pete Steinkopf and Bryan Keinlen of veteran Punk Rock band The Bouncing Souls.
