Interesting facts and trivia about Growing on Me. By Songfacts®.

Contrary to popular belief, and although filled with sexual innuendo, this song is in no way about pubic lice or any sexually transmitted disease. During an interview with the music television station VH1, frontman Justin Hawkins stated: "People have said it's about pubic lice, but that's obviously wrong because pubic lice don't grow on you, do they?" When questioned as to its true meaning, Justin said: "A sweet lady woman that you will never fully fathom or understand, but you love her so much that after a while it doesn't matter."

This was the second major-label UK single for The Darkness, following "Get Your Hands Off My Woman." By this time, they were, er, growing on audiences who discovered their unusual brand of joyful rock and roll laced with a touch of irony. Their next single, "I Believe In A Thing Called Love," was a huge hit; by the end of 2003 The Darkness were one of the most popular bands in England. They also had a host of issues - not the least of which was Justin Hawkins' drug problems - they delayed their follow-up album until late in 2005 and split the band up in 2006. They regrouped in 2011, but never returned to their former glory.
