Inspired by a piece of Florida legislation from 1972, which illegalized metal lunchboxes in schools due to children using them as weapons, the song references Manson as a youngster who is pushed around by bullies, waiting for the day he can "grow up to be a big rock & roll star". Manson stated the song was inspired by of one of his heroes, Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe.
The "Highschool Drop-outs" version is an edit which removes the profanity.
A music video was made for the song, directed by Richard Kern. This music video is one of four that displays Manson without makeup. It features the band playing in a skating rink, intertwined with footage of a boy being picked on by other kids until he snaps and becomes a rebel, cutting his hair and dreaming of being a rock star. The boy takes his lunchbox to the skating rink in the end of the video and gives it to Manson, who lights it on fire.
