I think the song is about a relationship the singer has with an older man. They do not have much in common and he tries to make her be more mature than she actually is....
I got this feeling on the summer day when you were gone
I crashed my car into the bridge, I watched, I let it burn
I threw your shit into a bag and pushed it down the stairs
I crashed my car into the bridge

I don't care, I love it, I don't care

I got this feeling on the summer day when you were gone
I crashed my car into the bridge, I watched, I let it burn
I threw your shit into a bag and pushed it down the stairs
I crashed my car into the bridge

I don't care, I love it, I don't care

You're on a different road, I'm in the milky way
You want me down on earth, but I am up in space
You're so damn hard to please, we gotta kill this switch
You're from the 70's, but I'm a 90's bitch

I love it, I love it

I got this feeling on the summer day when you were gone
I crashed my car into the bridge, I watched, I let it burn
I threw your shit into a bag and pushed it down the stairs
I crashed my car into the bridge

I don't care, I love it
I don't care, I love it, I love it
I don't care, I love it, I don't care

You're on a different road, I'm in the milky way
You want me down on earth, but I am up in space
You're so damn hard to please, we gotta kill this switch
You're from the 70's, but I'm a 90's bitch

I don't care, I love it
I don't care, I love it, I love it
I don't care, I love it
I don't care, I love it, I love it
I don't care, I love it

    My Interpretation"I got this feeling on the summer day when you were gone
    I crashed my car into the bridge, I watched, I let it burn
    I threw your shit into a bag and pushed it down the stairs
    I crashed my car into the bridge

    I don't care, I love it, I don't care

    I got this feeling on the summer day when you were gone
    I crashed my car into the bridge, I watched, I let it burn
    I threw your shit into a bag and pushed it down the stairs
    I crashed my car into the bridge

    I don't care, I love it, I don't care"

    A relationship. There's an emphasis on their closeness as "threw your shit into a bag and pushed it down the stairs" implies they lived together. "I crashed my car into the bridge, I don't care, I love it, I don't care" implies she's going to do stupid things because she's angry at how the relationship has ended, but she doesn't care about the stupidity of her actions because she just loves the feeling of being in "love".

    "You're on a different road, I'm in the milky way
    You want me down on earth, but I am up in space
    You're so damn hard to please, we gotta kill this switch
    You're from the 70's, but I'm a 90's bitch

    I love it, I love it"

    This verse gives us more information on their relationship. They aren't compatible as they're obviously opposites with him being practical ("you want me down on earth") and her more out there ("I'm in the milky way" & "but I am up in space") leading to fights ("you're so damn hard to please"). "We gotta kill this switch" implies these fights happen a lot as a switch is something easily turned on and off like their relationship. "You're from the 70's, but I'm a 90's bitch" could be seen as an age difference, but I see it more as another hit at their personality clashes. The other person in the 70s is again old-fashioned and practical while she, as a 90s bitch, who is more open to new experiences.

    Both verses repeat again, imply to me the girl and her partner keep doing this again or at least she continues to do it again because she hasn't learned that her kind of love doesn't work... or she simply doesn't care because she loves it.

    Song Meaningbridge=connection; car=communication;
    when I was alone I made up my mind there was no communication between us I now break our connection. all your thoughts I threw out(your shit in a bag). heading different directions; 70's vs 90's bitch (goal oriented vs free spirit); down to earth im in space (reality vs imagination); kill the switch (we only argue)
    relationship break up song, lets go our separate ways so says the song

    My OpinionI love this song! It makes you want to forget all your cares and do something crazy. Because you just don't care. And you love it. :)

    They could be talking about rebelling against their parents, but I think you could generalise it to rebelling against anyone that deserves it. The line "I threw your shit into a bag and pushed it down the stairs" says to me that the singer has finally had enough of this person and is going to stop putting up with them and start doing whatever she wants.

    Go Icona Pop!

    My Interpretation"I got this feeling on the summer day when you were gone"
    "I threw your shit into a bag and pushed it down the stairs"

    sounds to me like she's been left by someone she lived with. It is her place, so she can throw his stuff out. This rules out parents in my opinion.

    "You're on a different road, I'm in the milky way
    You want me down on earth, but I am up in space
    You're so damn hard to please, we gotta kill this switch
    You're from the 70's, but I'm a 90's bitch"

    She has been in love with an older man, who is settled and down-to-earth and she feels she cannot meet his standards.

    "I crashed my car into the bridge, I watched, I let it burn"
    "I don't care"

    This is an act of liberation from the standards of her lover. The car seems to symbolize these standards, perhaps bought with his money? Or is it wealth and security she abdicates from?

    Song MeaningCaroline Pop was quoted as saying the meaning to the song was "It’s about when you’re tired of being sad. You wake up and you say “f*** it” and then you go and just try to break free from all that"

    Love this song, so simple yet the meaning is so effective and easily relatable too.

    General CommentThe girl in this song is an idiot and makes Taylor Swift seem positively sane... but at least she's honest about being petty and stupid! Also, she doesn't sound like a Barlow Girl (Which Taylor most definitely is)

    General CommentThis song is really an allegory about the struggle between capitalism and communism. The singer is frustrated with the capitalist society that dominates her life. She decides to do away with the "blessings" of capitalism, e.g. her car and capitalism's shit which she throws out in a bag. This song is an embodiment of her youth growing up in socialist Sweden. While this song has become popular in the U.S., it is clearly a thinly veiled criticism of capitalist society that is ensconced in the very structure of the United States itself.

    Although the song may appear to be about a romantic relationship, this is a shallow reading of the text at hand, and there is overwhelming evidence to the contrary. She brings the element of romance into her lyrics in order to appeal to a Western audience, because she too is caught up in the insidious web of capitalism. In order to sell her anti-American piece to wider audiences, on the surface level she depicts a classic American love affair.

    "You're so damn hard to please, we gotta kill this switch
    You're from the 70s, but I'm a 90s bitch"
    In this crucial phrase she points out how thirsty the subjects of capitalism are for more and more success. She notes that capitalism is a circular trap and we must switch it off before we can find life's meaning. The 70s were the high tide of capitalism in response to the strong counter-culture movement in the 60s. She notes that those born in the 90s are children of communism that must question the very nature of capitalism in order to escape from the limiting corporeal realm. She supports this supposition by noting that she is "up in space" while capitalism seeks to drag her down to "earth".

    In conclusion, Icona Pop has become an icon of the socialist and communist movements that will inspire entire generations to come. Hits like these will hit back against the oppressive structure of capitalism.

    General CommentI find this song repetitive and dull, like most modern pop music.
