Golden Age

Album: Dear Science (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Though this song, like a number of others on Dear Science, is an angry diatribe against the system, TV on the Radio sugared the pill with upbeat dance rhythms and beats. Guitarist and songwriter Kyp Malone told MTV News: "It's just not wanting to write a song about complaint, basically. About these things that are sh--ty in the world and trying to present something optimistic... taking some actual responsibility to make the world someplace we want it to be. And we can do it with dance!"
