Before achieving fame as a solo artist, Meat Loaf sang lead on all the tracks on this album except this one, which Nugent sang. Nugent's previous album featured vocals by Derek St. Holmes, but he left in a dispute shortly before recording Free For All, giving the then-unknown Meat Loaf a chance.
Though Ted Nugent wrote the lyrics that included "Stakes are high, and so am I," he has never done drugs in his life, and has a strong stance against drugs, drinking, and fat chicks.
