I've had the idea for this song for about a year. I had the "Oh Danny Danger" hook line but never made it into a song. I was going through my voice recorder of song ideas and this one jumped out at me.
I had an idea about Danny Danger as this boy who wants to be a superhero and turns to the dark side as he developes over the years. I decided to change the hook to Johnny Danger because my dad's name is Danny and I couldn't sing it without picturing my dad :/ I also though that Johnny Danger sounded better.
