“I wanted a song that sounded like a video game, and of course everybody knows the Angry Birds game, so there’s the title. But there was also the coincidental aspect of the last political season with the so-called ‘war on women.’
“I realized that the plot is the same as this war on women thing, whereas a bunch of men, i.e., chauvinist pigs, are trying to control women’s ovaries, i.e., their eggs. So the game is that the angry birds are covering their eggs. From a metaphorical sense, the same thing is happening in our politics. It might not make a lot of sense outside of the US, but that’s what inspired me.
“Beyond that, it’s the novelty song on the record.”
