Laura Jane Grace & The Mississippi Medicals - "All Fucked Out"

Laura Jane Grace & The Mississippi Medicals are the group that Grace is currently touring with, featuring Matt Patton, Mikey Erg, and Paris Campbell Grace. The quartet just released a new single, "All Fucked Out." If you've seen the band play in the past few months, you've definitely heard this song, and have most likely had the song jammed in your head for a few days afterwards. It's kind of a lighter sounding song than we typically hear from Grace, and seems fairly tongue in cheek. It's lighthearted, but also viciously biting. It's the kind of song that might not grab you fully on the first listen, but on the second it will be burrowed into your soul.

Laura Jane Grace says of her latest single:

"Back in 2021, I sat down in my office to do some songwriting. Not knowing what specifically to write about that day, I challenged myself to write a song similar to whatever the current #1 hit in the world was at the time. I made the challenge to myself without knowing exactly what that song was so I had to look it up, and as it turned out at that moment, the current #1 song in the world was ‘Butter’ by BTS. Now, for those of you not familiar with the song ‘Butter’, it's about how the singer is ‘smooth like butter’.

"‘Hmmm…’ I thought to myself. ‘If they're smooth like Butter, what am I?’ And the answer to that question is ‘All Fucked Out’ — not to be confused with ‘All Fucked Up’, mind you. ‘All Fucked Out’ as in zero fucks left to give. The song quickly became a staple in my live set and I've taken a couple different previous attempts at recording it, but it wasn't until Me, Matt [Patton], Mikey [Erg] and Paris [Campbell Grace] got together this past December in Water Valley, Mississippi at Matt's Studio, Dial Back Sound, that it all came together and the song was recorded the way it was meant to be heard."
