Young explained The Vaccines Come of Age
album title to Q
magazine: "It's very tongue-in-cheek, it's a joke," he said. "In the same way the first one was a joke too. I like having the name in the titles because it sounds classic, Meet The Beatles
, More From The Monkees
, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
. Also it is a lyric from one of the singles ('No Hope
'), but lyrically it's actually: 'It's hard to come of age,' so if you're going to take it seriously you need to think of it in that context, as a human being and not as a singer in a band. But purely taken as The Vaccines Come of Age
, that's supposed to disarming."
