The single premiered in North America on Saturday Night Live on January 26, and released as a single the following day. The song's lyrics interpret "You Only Live Once" to mean the complete opposite of dangerous and irresponsible behavior, and to instead be over secure and protective of life, in a pessimistic viewpoint. The song urges the public to be fully aware of their surroundings and the hazards of everyday life, since everything, in the writer's viewpoint, is a threat to life. The lyrics also satirize basic knowledge of economical events, dangerous activities and life-threatening events, and make reference to famous or not-so-famous acts done by other famous people or citizens " Then bury all your money in the backyard like a Beagle ", " Build a bomb shelter basement with titanium walls ". Also credited for songwriting are Rhiannon Bryan and Rhydian Davies, members of the Welsh alternative rock band The Joy Formidable , whose single " Whirring " is sampled throughout the song.

If you're anything like me and for your sake I hope you're not , you wake up every morning and dread getting out of bed, let alone leaving the house. Anything can happen out there. It's all about self-preservation, you see. You've only got one life, so you'd better do everything in your power to safeguard it. The guys in the Lonely Island evidently feel the same. Either that or they're using their new song "YOLO" as an opportunity to mock people like me. In any event, they recruited Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and rapper Kendrick Lamar to perform on the track and appear in the video.
