"It reminds me of something that might've come out in the early '90s. I like how sludgy it is, like the bastard son of a pop song," Pierre tells Spinner. "I feel this particular number is just an updated version of what we do: We make fun of ourselves while vomiting our insides out onto the shoes of anyone who will listen."
Despite its pretty melody and perky popness, the song is a vitriolic girl-dumps-boy and -- no surprises here -- boy-vents-and-then-some scenario that's more or less based on a real event. "Everything I write is based on some percentage of truth," says the 33-year-old Minnesota native. "That truth is then exaggerated or changed in order to have the most kickass rhymes possible. This song in particular is pretty damn close to the truth and little modification was needed."
But it seems those love-torn wounds are healed. "The way I felt in the story happened several years ago and I no longer feel that way now, thank goodness," Pierre says. "Also, the woman in the story and I are much better friends now than we ever were when dating. So, it does have a happy ending. I just enjoy focusing on the turmoil."
Check out the exclusive premiere of the song below. 'My Dinosaur Life,' the band's major label debut, is due out Jan. 19 from Columbia Records.
