Background and writing

The song deals with those times when you can't remember what you did the night before. "It's not about being f---ed up or drunk," Whibley told MTV. "It's more about the aftermath when you're hearing everything you've just done the night before, and you're like, 'Ah, f---, I'm better off dead.' I don't regret any of the things I do and I don't mind doing them, I just hate hearing about it. Being told every morning, 'Dude, what did you do last night?' drives me nuts."[1]

Music video

The video was released in Canada, Japan and the UK only. It was directed by Chris Hafner and shows assorted backstage footage and concert clips.
