The single charted at number one in Canada but it did not chart anywhere else. It is the only Blink-182 single to ever be number one in Canada. "I Won't Be Home for Christmas" was also the longest running number one single in Canada for 2001. It was number one for five weeks in 2001 and for one week in 2002.
The song is one of two post-Enema of the State singles to be left out of their Greatest Hits album, however it is available as a bonus track on several import editions.
The song tells of a man who is fed up with Christmas and the various events that accompany it. As a result, he attacks a troupe of Christmas carolers singing outside his house with a baseball bat and ends up in jail, where he is violated by his cellmate, Bubba.
