Rateliff has said the song is about drinking one's life away after a break-up, and that the lyrics are based on his personal experience with delirium tremens during alcohol withdrawal. He also described it as a "joke song" and said that originally his band didn't plan to record it, but due to positive reception, did so and released it as a single. The music video was released on July 15, 2015. It was directed and edited by Greg Barnes, and produced by Melissa Giles. The video depicts Nathaniel Rateliff and his band performing the song in front of an audience of prisoners and is an homage to the end credits scene of the 1980 film The Blues Brothers.
