You Ain't Gotsta Gotsta
|"You Ain't Gotsta Gotsta"|
|Song by MMM...Cookies from the album Sweet Hamster Like Jewels From America!|
|Released||December 4, 2008|
"You Ain't Gotsta Gotsta" is a cookie song from the LP Underground 8.0 CD, named Sweet Hamster Like Jewels From America!. All songs on the CD were written by Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda and attributed to a fictional group called "MMM...Cookies". "You Ain't Gotsta Gotsta" was described by Mike as "a James-Brown-Meets-Bobby-McFerrin track".
The concept of a cookie song was explained by Mike in the official Linkin Park forums in December 2008: "Working on a song for an album is sometimes a lot of work, and occasionally we need some time to unwind. When Chester and I unwind, sometimes we make another kind of lighter, fun song. We call these songs "cookies." I think came from the idea that you get your dessert (your cookies) after you eat all the rest of your meal."
Speaking to Good Mythical Morning about the song, Chester said, "Oh yeah, there's a song called 'You Ain't Gotsta Gotsta'. That's basically, like, you know, when you're in a situation when someone's like 'dude, I told you so' and you're like 'you ain't gotsta gotsta me.' That's kind of that thing, you know? We're like 'I know that you're gonna tell me that you're gonna tell me so.' You ain't gotsta gotsta."
