Dull Life

Album: It's Blitz! (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This was the only song that was written prior to the official writing and studio sessions for It's Blitz!.
  • Guitarist Nick Zinner told the New Musical Express January 17, 2009, that this is the hardest hitting song on the album. He explained: "I grew up listening to metal - not that it sounds like a metal song, but it's really energetic and rocks out."
  • Clash Magazine asked Frontwoman Karen O what this song is about. She replied: "That was pretty much like flying by the seat of my pants. We wrote that in 2007, at a time where we were about to tour behind our EP, and we just felt like writing a new song and the lyric just kind of came. I don't really know what it's about or why I came up with it. (laughs)."
