Interesting facts and trivia about Chocolate. By Songfacts®.

The 1975 are a British Alternative Rock band from Manchester, England. The group who all met at school comprise vocalist Matthew Healy, guitarist Adam Hann, drummer George Daniel and bassist Ross MacDonald. This dreamy guitar-laced tune is the lead single from their third EP, Music For Cars, which was released on March 4, 2013 via Dirty Hit Records. It became their first song to chart in the UK Top 20.

The 1975 took their name from a book of beat poetry that Matthew Healy found in Ibiza. He explained to Somekindofawesome: "I met an artist on holiday. It sounds a bit more bohemian, idealistic than maybe it was but I met him and ended up leaving with a book that must have been treated almost like a diary by a previous owner, so when I read it there was all these mad scribblings and notes, and the person had dated it 'the 1st of June The 1975.'" The writings and the use of the word "the" in front of a year, "1975" really impacted on Healy and the band's name was born.

The song finds Healy taking on the persona of a gangsta as he sings about fleeing the police in his car with a stash of weed. (Chocolate is their euphemism for marijuana.) Matt Healy explained to The Richie T Experience: "It's a love letter to the authority figures in our town – you know about small town boredom, both by the kids and by the police."
