Steel Panther Singled Out Week: Why Can't You Trust Me
This song is special to me. Not only because I think it's an experience most guys have had in a relationship, but because of the way it was written. We had just finished doing a string of shows in the UK and we got on the tour bus. The plan was to go to the airport, which was a 4 or 5 hour drive, and fly home. Well, after a couple of hours and banging some groupies, the other guys all passed out. Me? Well. I have a hard time sleeping on those damn tour busses. So I'm laying there in one of those tiny little bunks, staring at the ceiling that's 4 inches from my face, thinking about how hard it is to be on the road in a bitchin' band like Steel Panther, cuz everyone wants a piece of our magic..... and I realized that's probably why none of us have steady girlfriends.
Most girls would never be able to handle it. Too many chicks. Too many drugs. Too many chicks giving us drugs. And that's when the chorus came to me. And once it started, I couldn't stop it. I wrote pretty much the whole song in that bunk on that tour bus on the way to the airport. All the chords and everything. Anyone who's ever been with a jealous girl can relate to this. F**k- Anyone who's been with any girl can relate to this.
It's a good thing I can't sleep on tour busses.
