Who Cares is the fifth track on Egypt Station, Paul McCartney 's 17th solo studio album.

With Who Cares I was thinking about a song where you're actually talking to the people who may listen to it. And in my case I was imagining the young fans, or just young people generally who might hear this, and who are going through some sort of problem where they're being picked on, being put on.

These days it would be internet bullying, trolls and all that. In my school days it would have just been bullies and people just generally picking on each other. So I know that happens all over the world to millions of people.

So my thing was to kind of try and help, try and help, almost give some sort of advice.

So the song says, you know: "Have you ever been fed up with being bullied? Has this ever happened? With people who have called you names, who have done all these mean things. Has this ever happened to you? Well who cares?" And then the twist at the end of that chorus is like: "Well who cares? I do."

Another song I really like from the album. I like how he publicly shamed some bullies during the Grand Central Station concert before he sang this.

Awesome song in my opinion, but when I hear the intro with the wailing feedback guitar, I can’t help but think Ove heard it somewhere else before. Can anyone place it? I do think its quite a good rock star.

Did Paul not write the lyrics to this song? I didn't know that.

Cool video. He seems super into it.

GREAT video - he looks terrific as a shrink.The song has a great message. Alas, I'm not into the musical side of it.
