Songfacts®:

  • Your Demise is a five-piece Hardcore band from England. This track from their fourth album, The Golden Age, is one of their lighter songs and it split their fan base. Frontman Ed McRae told Kerrang! magazine: "We all love Pop-Punk; it's what we all listen to and it's what we were all brought up on, so that song just emerged from that love. I think it pissed off a lot of people because it's 'not Hardcore', but a hell of a people like it! It sounds like the Offspring or something."
  • The song's music video sees McRae engaged in multiple changes of attire. He told Kerrang!: "It was great fun! I had to bring loads of clothes with me, though, there's a hell of a lot of costume changes! Some people went mental about that, too! (laughs) We shot most of the video in east London so I had to get changed in the street. I kept my boxers on though, so it wasn't indecent..."
