Blow It Up

Album: What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds The Vaccines' singer Justin Young getting worked up. He told NME: "This is about as angry as I'm willing to show people I'm capable of getting. Again, it's pretty direct. It's about someone taking himself too seriously and how that wound me up. It's me saying, 'let it go.'"
