Dave Grohl on the song: "'Stacked Actors' is a response to living in Hollywood for about a year and a half, and my disdain and disgust of everything plastic and phony, which is the foundation of that city. And I just hated it. I had a lot of fun, but I had a lot of fun hating it.""I wrote 'Stacked Actors' about everything that is fake and everything that is plastic and glamorous and unreal, so if that pertains to anyone that comes to mind then there you go.""It's about having nothing better to do than trying to be other people, it really grossed me out. Actors, just in general make me ****ing sick.""Living in Hollywood always seemed transitional to me. Truth be told, I ****ing hated Hollywood, hated the whole life, hated most of the people we met. That's what I'm saying in 'Stacked Actors'.
