Chances R wasn't my idea, it was my friend Noah Peffer's joke/art project. He had the thought of a fake boy band that packaged the angst of punk for teenage consumption. At the time, it seemed like an outlandish extension of the premise of major label grunge ... now, with all the '00s between us, it seems shockingly self-evident!! Don't u think?
He made all this fake merchandise and maybe some ads and album covers for Chances R, but he needed a song, so he asked me to write it. It was so fun. I was like 17 or something, and I'd never been to Roxbury, MA before. His friend was chain smoking cigarettes in a tiny apartment that was supposed to be a recording studio, and we went and wrote and recorded it in an afternoon. My friend Pat [Morrissey] did that awesome/bad spoken word.
