Appearances

Overview

The lead guitar part from "Let It All Hang Out" and possibly other elements date back to 2000, while the rest of the song and lyrics were co-written by both Rivers Cuomo and Jermaine Dupri in 2009. The song was featured as downloadable content for Rock Band and Rock Band 2 in December 2009, along with "Beverly Hills" and "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To."

Band Commentary

Rivers: "Let It All Hang Out", that's actually a riff I had laying around for a long time, on the electric guitar. We just needed another song, so I pulled it out. Jermaine Dupri came in and started doing a vocal line over the top of it. It's really fun.

Brian: During that song Jacknife Lee had a lot to do with helping that song become a song. He really liked that riff and he kept pushing Rivers to make a song out of it. [1]

Personnel

Lyrics

I was driving this morning and sat in traffic on the way to work work
Soon as I got in, my boss is tripping and acting like a freaking jerk jerk
Me and my girl ain't speak in weeks and I can't remember the reason why why why
On top of that it's a recession, I feel like Jay-Z; this can't be life life

Tonight I'm leaving all my worries and my problems in the house
I'm going out with my homies and we gonna let it, gonna let it
All hang out, let it all hang out, it's the last day of the weekend, boy I need to release
Let it all hang out, let it all hang out
I'm going out with my homies and we gon' let it all hang out

Time for me to leave this place, don't feel like its going to come come come
I got bills on top of bills and I don't know where I'm getting my money from from
The walls feel like their closing in, I honestly don't feel like I can make it
I'm sad and mad and I can't take it, that's why

Me and JD chillin in the shack
Sharing Chiclets from the same pack
180-proof Vitamin Water
Energy flavor
Take us to your daughter
I wanna see you pretty ladies on the dance floor
Put your hands up in the air like you don't care no more
We gonna hit the town tonight, we were born to rock
