Fat Lip Lyrics
When I'm hangin' out drinking in the back of an El Camino
As a kid, I was a skid and no one knew me by name.
I trashed my own house party cause nobody came.
I know I'm not the one you...

I think it's about a lower middle class high school loser kid that nobody knows and everyone hates. The teenager in the song gets annoyed by people especially adults that complain too much and they just want to do their own thing and be themselves, even though everyone else thinks that their stupid or crazy and the kid gets made fun of but doesn't care, he or she won't conform to society's useless standards.

it's a party anthem with a good beat, fairly simple lyrics that are catchy, easy to remember and fun to sing along when you're ready to rock out! if you read more into it than that, I have a bridge I'd like to sell you... having a Fat Lip or hell, even a black eye after a hard night of out of control excitement is what we call a Trophy, and the chicks dig it. and if you don't remember how you got it (likely slipped down your own stairs like a drunken fool) just tell them, "you should have seen the other guy" and let the girls' imaginations fill in the blanks.
it's a right if passage for any human worth their ounce of life experiences. I pity anyone who says with pride, "I've never gotten drunk, blacked out, got in a fight, got knockout, got 86'd..." I shake my head and say, "you really missed out on what life is about. Maybe next time you'll figure it out."
- a guy that knows the shame and fame from experience
... ... and to the haters, upset at themselves for not being skilled enough to write 1st grade poetry and strum a few cords... we invite you to come to a show, and we'll show you what a Fat Lip, black eye and blackout is all about, and you won't even need alcohol... peace ")
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

This song ROCKS!!!!
This is just a song about being reckless and young. Don't be like the uptight jerks that came before you! Make your mark, even if they think your a loser for it!

Fat Lip is about having fun and not listening to Adults.

I think it's about a guy who grew up the way he wanted to and he didn't obey the rules.
