Album: We Started Nothing (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Ting Ting Jules De Martino told Rhapsody about this song: "That track was just a riff we had on stage. Before we forgot the melody, we went to the studio and just turned on the vocal so we could remember it. That guide vocal that Katie put down is the track on the album. It's almost like you think she's singing something, but it's just complete gobbledygook. So we liked the idea that it was of its time. We're not into writing songs, storing them on machines and going back to them months later and finishing them."
  • In China this song is banned and all the Chinese album versions have had this track removed. De Martino explained to Rhapsody that because the lyrics can't be translated "they worried that there's some sort of secret message in it."
