I Don't Belong in This Club

Album: Single release only (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • Why Don't We had to wait in line for an hour to get into the titular club and then had to fork out an entrance fee. However, once inside, the excitement fades as they find themselves in the midst of bad DJs and awkward club goers.

    And I know that I should go home
    But I'm still standing here so
    I guess one more for the road
    I wanna raise a toast so


    Though they're not having any fun the guys feel they may as well stick around a little longer.
  • The anti-party anthem features a verse by Macklemore, who also talks about feeling that he doesn't belong to this particular club. The Seattle rapper's rhymes represent Why Don't We's second-ever collaboration, following their feature on Logan Paul's 2017 track "Help Me Help You" in 2017.
  • Songwriters Gang Wolf, Zak Abel and Jacob Manson penned the tune. None of the Why Don't We quintet contributed to its writing though Macklemore gets a credit for his rhymes.
