The song is a critique of Bruce Springsteen's limited songwriting topics. McAloon suggests that Springsteen's worldview is too restricted and that "some things hurt more, much more, than cars and girls".
The song's popularity is partly due to it being misinterpreted as a "driving song", leading it to appear on compilation albums such as Summer Cruisin' and Top Gear (a spin-off from the BBC Two motoring show of the same name).
