''I was living with a girl in Vancouver at the time. We got into a fight about something stupid, like what most people fight about. I went downstairs and I turned on my PA system. I would sing into a PA, I wasn’t just singing into the room, so it felt like I was really delivering the song. I wanted it to be really loud so she could hear everything I was saying. I had written the second verse, the whole “Cause living with me must have damn near killed you,” and when it got to that part, I really wanted her to hear it. I thought that song was my best revenge after a really s—tty argument. Instead of her getting the point, she turns to me and goes, ''Whatever song you’re working on downstairs, it’s great.'' - Chad Kroeger
''To be honest, I got chills when the band played it for me. It was a first listen, and I remember saying, ‘Damn, that’s a big song, it is going to be a hit.’ Little did I know how big it would ultimately become. I mean, huge!… There was a period I would get in the car and almost any station I’d hit on the radio you’d hear the song, whether it was rock, active rock, alt rock, hot AC, AC, pop, etc. I think even some urban and country stations played it.'' - Ron Burman (msuic executive)
''It wasn’t supposed to be a vengeful anthem; it was supposed to be what it was. I find it to be a sarcastic look at relationships. Like the line “Are we having fun yet?” That’s full sarcasm. And then I say “Yet, yet, yet, no, no.” A lot of people think I’m saying, “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,” but I’m repeating “Yet.'' - Chad Kroeger
