The song really isnt as deep as some people think. When the guys needed to blow off some steam back in their club days (and earlier than that in Tommy and vinces case), they used to go up a mountain road called GMR, or Glendora Mountain Road, and party a little. It was also known as the hieghts. Having went to high school with Tommy's sister Athena, i remember her talking about this back in 82 when she brought a demo cassette for us to listen to. Wish i had that cassette now!
