Now, before anyone starts in with, “Oh, Lisa’s going to talk about the end of the world, again,” I most definitely am not. The “Death From Above” that’s referenced in this song is literally the band Death From Above. In this video, the members of CSS even wear elephant masks as an homage from Death From Above, which is a nice gesture, I think. So, no, this song is not about a comet or a gigantic meteor smashing down on the Earth while the members of the band make love. Unless, of course, that’s how you really want to interpret it. As you know, I’m a big supporter of freedom of interpretation.
This was CSS’s first international single. It was taken off of their debut studio album, Cansei de Ser Sexy. Sadly, the song was a hit only in the UK. So, once again, the British got it right.
