Greg Graffin: "It's tongue-in-cheek. It's just more of a prediction song. People are spending more time being entertained in "real time" than by real people, and that leads to a lot of questions. People think they're communicating, when they're not really talking, they're typing. In a realm like that, it's hard to talk about any real attraction, because you're attracted to the idea of the other person, rather than the real person. You're withdrawing from society, rather than creating society."
In the May 2001 Yahoo Internet Life Magazine they had the article "Sex and censorship online" and they quoted the song: "I love my computer, you're always in the mood.

The single was released to Alt Radio stations in June 2000. It would not chart on any major chart worldwide. This also marked the final single Bad Religion would release through Atlantic Records.
