Queens of the Stone Age singer Josh Homme contributes a guitar solo to this track. Biffy frontman Simon Neil was quick to praise the desert rocker's guitar skills to Kerrang!: "He came to the studio and listened to the song," he said, "and two minutes later, he was playing the best guitar solo you've ever heard."
Drummer Ben Johnston added: "Josh didn't spunk all over the song. There's no fanfare saying, please welcome Josh Homme! He's everything you want in a rock star. He just added his take and it fits in with the song perfectly."
