Commenting on the importance of the title track, written in late 2019 and recorded last year, frontman Dexter Holland said: “I feel like we are at a unique period in history where our world leaders are not saying we are doing our best “It’s more like they say ‘fuck it’ and it’s really scary.”
Guitarist Kevin ‘Noodles’ Wasserman added, “People say if everything goes to hell we can make the most of it, or at least swing it. ‘Let the bad times roll!’ “

‘Noodles’ recently targeted the controversial legacy of Conservative US radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, who passed away earlier this month.
“When Rush Limbaugh had a TV show we had to ask him NOT to use it [The Offspring’s 1994 track ‘Come Out And Play’] as bumper music, ”the guitarist recalled in a tweet.
“We didn’t want to be associated with him in any way. He was a dishonest bigoted hypocrite who got rich by exploiting people’s fear and dividing the country. “
