About this song

According to the Grenade Songfacts, Mars is so desperate to impress his hard-to-please girl on this song, that he assures her he would catch a grenade for her, along with other assorted foolhardy acts. The original inspiration for this track came from a songwriter friend of his, Benny Blanco.
