Tony: “I don’t know if that was an official single or not but I know KROQ played it and it just spread. Just another very intense break up song.”

Adrian: “
We never made a video for ‘Happy Now.’ ‘Happy Now’ was never an official single, but it was being played on the radio by some of the stations. I always liked that one. It’s definitely more of a straight rock song. That one seems to go over live really well.”

Tom: “I think like ‘Happy Now?’ was one that got released as an interim single. When things took off in L.A and California before the rest of the country, there was a lag in the single somehow. We released that as an interim single and it was on the radio a fair amount, and probably more in California than anywhere."
