If you’ve lived on Planet Earth at any point over the last 21 years, you’ve most certainly heard My Own Worst Enemy. For the last two decades, the song has been inescapable. You’ve heard it on the radio, in the supermarket, at restaurants, weddings, and most definitely, karaoke bars. It’s the song that everybody can sing along to, sometimes even if they don’t know the name of the band. But how and why did My Own Worst Enemy become permanently woven into our pop culture consciousness?
Over four episodes, we explore the impact that this iconic track has had on music and pop culture and the enduring legacy of the band Lit. Conversations with the band and musical peers like Butch Walker, Adrian Young of No Doubt, and Noodles from the Offspring, as well as label executives, radio hosts, professional songwriters and musicologists tell the story behind the seminal song that has been in constant rotation since its release in 1999.
