There's something about good old moms and dads that just makes emotions run high. Whether it's love or exasperation, our parents seem to bear the brunt of the most extreme versions of ourselves. We all had those adolescent outbursts of "I hate you!" or "Leave me alone!" yet there's still nobody else I call when I'm heartbroken, lost, or need cooking advice. Simply put, MOMS AND DADS ARE THE BEST, and I am of the opinion that more people should take the time to recognize and pay tribute to that.
Luckily, that's exactly what Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds explains the band intended to do with their new, high-energy single "I Bet My Life." Reynolds explains, "This song is about the relationship I've had with my parents throughout the years. At times it's been strained and difficult, but in the end, 'I Bet My Life' celebrates the bond that we still hold on to."
Kudos to these guys for putting one out for the folks.
