• This song is about Sune Rose Wagner's difficult relationship with his father. His dad died an alcohol induced death on Christmas Eve in 2013. The Raveonettes' guitarist and songwriter explained to Q magazine: "Alcohol, infidelity, abandonment are all part of my story about him and yes, I actually walked in on my dad having sex with a redhead in my parent's bedroom. I was ten years-old."

    "Aggressive and groovy is what we strived for here," Wagner added. "Bit crushed guitars and heavily distorted synth basses are key elements to the theme of this song. The noise is necessary to emphasize the serious nature of the lyrics, it's not a gimmick."
