30 Seconds To Mars came up with this song on the spur of the moment. It was written, recorded and mixed in just two days, alongside their cover of Bjork's "The Hunter." Both were included as bonus tracks on A Beautiful Lie.
The A Beautiful Lie album was originally going to be released under the title of Battle of One until the band came up with the title track in Cape Town, South Africa.
In Gary Numan's "Cars," the message is that cars lead to a mechanical society devoid of personal interaction. This didn't stop automakers from using it in commercials. Both Nissan and Oldsmobile have used it in ads.
