Many of us can recall the Used with their iconic “All That I’ve Got” music video. Some of us have probably even imagined sitting atop a large pile of books and getting pulled into a story with the band in their A Clockwork Orange-inspired fits.
“All That I’ve Got” was inspired by frontman Bert McCracken’s real-life tragedy where his dog, David Bowie, was hit by a car. The track comes from the band’s 2004 LP, In Love And Death, which is having its 16th anniversary today.

“Doubt can be an avalanche. It can cascade out and infect everything it touches. Inspiration is also infectious,” said frontman Bert McCracken of the track. “The original chorus lyric was ‘I can’t be your lighthouse,’ until I was reminded by my 6-year-old daughter that I can be and I am. It helps to remember that we all have the capability to inspire someone in our own way.”
