In a gravelly drawl, Tepper sings the praises of the infamous musician whose scandalous escapades are that of legend. He muses, “Tommy is a legend. I saw the crazy things he was doing and that's what I always envisioned being a rockstar was. So, I wrote a song about one of the best drummers to have ever lived, Tommy Lee.”

Describing the track as “pure escapism” Chad explains, “I made this song for a 13-year-old me hanging out in my mom's trailer and writing my favorite band names on blank t-shirts because I couldn't afford to buy the actual merch. I’d listen to the radio, play air guitar and dream of one day being a rockstar.”
