Trivia

Originally, people thought the song was about marijuana, but lead singer Isaac Brock said that this was not his intention. He told "Rolling Stone": "I was saying 'Fire It Up' as in the sense of turning over a car." [ [http://www.rollingstone.com/news/qa/story/13712527/qa_isaac_brock Q&A and Exclusive Audio: Isaac Brock : Rolling Stone ] ] This is referenced in the line "Fire It Up, Fire It Up, when we fix the carburator, then we'll push off once again in an hour or so later."

Video Contest

In 2007 Modest Mouse filmed videos in front of greenscreen for three songs off of We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank (We've Got Everything, Missed the Boat, and Fire It Up). The footage was released to the public as a contest for fans to create videos. The winner was announced on July 10 as David Naylor.
