The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "A** Back Home" tells a clean tale about a traveling musician whose erratic schedule forces him to be away from his partner much of the time and, as a result, he tries especially hard to remind her he cares even when he's away. Aside from its crass title (which is changed to "Get Yourself Back Home" in the edited version), the single includes one use of the word "s--t" but contains no other mature content or language -- resulting in an overall OK tune for both tweens and teens.

What's the story?
"A** BACK HOME" (or "Get Yourself Back Home" in the edited version) is the second single off The Papercut Chronicles II by funky hip-hop band Gym Class Heroes. With British singer/songwriter Neon Hitch lending a vocal hand, the track describes a romance in which one partner's job as a traveling musician often keeps him on the road. Because of their frequent distance apart, the two make a special effort to remind each other they care.
