I Wanna Secret Family (With You)

Album: Days Go By (2012)
  • During the writing of Days Go By, frontman Dexter Holland decided that as most of the material was heavy and serious, he needed to pen a couple of more whimsical tunes. "Secret Family" is one of them. He told Spinner: "The idea of a secret family is something I've heard about. You always hear the story of a pilot who has families in different countries. The other family is his 'secret family.' It's a funny thing to sing about. In this story, it's a guy who goes into a strip club. The idea is he's so infatuated with this girl he wants to have a secret family with her. It's not a nice compliment, but the guy in the song assumes it is."
