“I wanted to write a catchy feel-good anthem about never being happy. I was thinking a lot about ‘We Don’t Care’ from College Dropout (R.I.P. Pre-Trump Kanye). It’s a fun song for the kids to sing, but the message is grim and sobering. My sensibilities tend to lean towards playfully dark, so it felt like a satisfying introduction to the album.” – Rob Tanchum
‘IDFSG’ contains a relatable storyline and melodic vocals. Also, the song possesses an ear-friendly instrumentation flavored with a neo-soul, jazz, and hip-hop elements.
