"Something in Your Mouth" is the second single released from Canadian rock band Nickelback's sixth studio album Dark Horse.[1] The song was released as a digital download to the U.S. iTunes store on October 28, 2008. The song is much heavier than the first single "Gotta Be Somebody", and more like the rest of the album. It was officially released as the second single to rock radio only on December 15, 2008,[2] similar to the release of "Animals" from their previous album All the Right Reasons. It is the only single from that album to not be played on pop stations in the United States and Canada, whereas Shakin' Hands for American radio stations has been only added at alternative rock, active rock and mainstream rock radio stations.
