"Rock Problems" as written by and Craig Finn John Reis....
The girls want to go to the party.
But no one is in any shape to drive.
So we called up your guy and when he comes we're gonna ask for a ride.

We get to the place.
And she don't want to dance.
She says she's not really into this track.
She wants to know what's going on in the room
That's all the way in the back.

Back home we were listening to Catholic Boy.
I got hung up on people who died.
I didn't even want to go out because I was way too fried.

She said I just can't sympathize with your rock and roll problems.
Isn't this what we wanted?
Some major rock and roll problems.

That one girl got me cornered in the kitchen.
I said I'll do anything but clean.
She wants to know what I liked better
Being a trash bin or an ice machine?
Some writer is by the fridge.
He said he didn't make the gig.
We wants to know if I was drunk.
He said the kids that he knows from the net said the sound kind of sucked.

I didn't want to stay in.
Because the walls are so grey.
You can almost feel the tentacles tighten.
I didn't even want to go out because I was way too frightened.

She said I just can't sympathize with your rock and roll problems.
Isn't this what we wanted?
Some major rock and roll problems.

Didn't want to go out but it felt really right
When someone put on Heaven Tonight.
Had a moment in the middle of
In Color and In Black and White.
Sing along to the Southern Girls.
Rip me out of my little world.

These are rock and roll problems.
This is just what we wanted.
We got some rock and roll problems

    General CommentCraig Finn said on the BBC Radio 1 Punk Show with Mike Davies that this song was about the normal type of problems you get when you're in a rock band and realising they don't matter because hey, you're in a rock band and get to travel the world playing shows.
