This song came out of nowhere one hot summer night in Melbourne. Airbourne frontman Joel O'Keeffe recalled to AntiMusic
: "Just messing around on the guitar drinking some Jack Daniel's Single Barrel... came up with the verse riff and chorus riff then went outside for a cigarette and looked up at the full moon and then 'I'm a Hellraiser' came, which lead onto 'you gotta live it up' and so forth.
"Went back inside and started forming the guts of it," he continued, "then the next day we went into the jam room put it together and recorded a demo of it, then Ryan and I worked on lyrics some more, we showed Brian Howes (Producer) then we put it through pre-production and recorded it for the album.
Then we worked on the intro with Brian and Jay adding in the Air raid sirens, Bombers, Spitfires and Dive bombers and the big Bomb. The inspiration came from a month long booze binge of wild crazy nights in Melbourne that month... good times!"
The song was released as the first single from Black Dog Barking
on March 25, 2013.
