Drummer Dave Witte comments on behalf of RIVER BLACK: "This one came together very quickly at the end of the writing sessions for our debut album. Actually, the whole beginning has been sitting around since 2008. We never had anything that made sense to go along with it and it just happened this time. Lyrically, it's a kick in the pants to the unmotivated and a rallying cry for the malcontent."

Vocalist Mike Olender adds: "This song was inspired by some individuals, who latch on to the misfortune of others and try to claim it as their own; vicarious victims, who are so addicted to drama and self-loathing that they gravitate towards any tragedy and make it a part of their identity, hence the hashtag. This first-world problem is the height of privilege and it speaks to a larger problem of intentional victimhood in American society, where too often we pre-empt problems that are not ours with solutions we don't need; solutions which are rooted in a corrupt health care system more committed to profitable treatments than good health or personal growth."

RIVER BLACK have previously revealed artwork and track-list of their debut full-length, which can both be viewed below.
