“My Own Worst Enemy” is the lead single from Lit’s second album A Place in the Sun. It is the band’s most popular song, spending eleven weeks at number 1 on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart.
The song is a playable song on Rock Band 2 and Rock Band Unplugged.
In an interview published in the June 1999 edition of Spin Magazine (vol 15, no. 6), guitarist Jeremy Popoff and front man A. Jay Popoff had the following to say:
Jeremy: “The song is the result of waking up and realizing you screwed up the night before. The first verse is about screwing up with your chick. A Jay’s the king of having four ex-girlfriends show up to the same show. It’s funny watching him try to juggle.”
A. Jay: “It was the combination of many, many incidents. Sometimes I get in trouble when I get naked in public and have a girl here. It happens when I’ve been drinking Jagermeister. I actually sang ‘My Own Worst Enemy’ naked in the studio.”
A. Jay: “The second verse is about the morning after, when you hear about all the lame shit you did. The last time it happened was when we got really drunk in Laughlin, Nevada, for New Year’s. I stole a janitor cart, and me and five friends jumped onto the flatbed, rode down the sidewalk, and got chased by the cops. The next day, I found a couple of my friends were taken in by security, who were searching for me all night. I was tucked away in my hotel room, oblivious.”
