The song was a success, peaking at #2 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart and #71 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was written by Mark Hoppus after the producer for TOYPAJ told them they needed some "feel-good" songs on their record. Mark went home that night and wrote "The Rock Show", and Tom wrote "First Date" that same night.
