Simply put the track is about the ugly and quite frankly embarrassing ‘incel’ culture. There was no set theme for the song when writing the lyrics but it all just so happened to go down that route and I thought it would be a funny song whilst also poking fun at these ridiculous people. The song switches between the perspective of this ‘incel’ character who although clearly is totally delusional about why nobody likes him, is angry at the world and is hateful towards anyone who won’t give him a chance. The other perspective is the rest of the world looking at this guy (rightfully so) mocking how ridiculous he is and how shamed he should feel for having this extreme view on others.

Hailing from Britain’s oldest city, Colchester’s Rad Pitt have stayed true to their founding ethos since 2015: play fat riffs and keep it DIY.
Throughout their time together, they’ve churned out three albums (each with a crazily short duration) and played shows each individual member only dreamed of playing before the band began. From a Sunday morning opening set at Latitude festival, to a set at ATG in a tent surrounded by a biblical rain shower, to supporting some of the heroes of the underground scene including The St Pierre Snake In vasion and Alpha Male Tea Party.
Now in 2022, with a fresh faced, young-enough-to-be-the-guitarists-son vocalist, the band are back with a traditionally short 4-track EP. In its short run time, it discusses snakes, ‘incel’ culture, lycra clad cyclists and horror movies - continuing to stick to the band’s signature tongue in cheek lyricism set to a backdrop of distorted ostinati.
