This was written and sung by Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell. In the liner notes of the Music Bank boxed set, Cantrell wrote: "Another attempt to reconcile the fact that my life and paths are tearing me apart from the person I love. All the songs I write about her are a way for me to maybe speak to her, express things I could never express."
Randy from Colerain Twp., OhI sometimes cannot distinguish between the two on vocals, they sound very similar. I have never noticed until I saw the video that Jerry sang lead.
Prabs from Plymouth, United Kingdom Kayla - no she means jerry cantrell, he did the vocals in this song which isn't hard to notice
Kayla from Oklahoma City, OkMichelle - you mean Layne's voice. =D Jerry is the guitarist. Kermist & Dortez - I agree completely. I can never get tired of this song.

Angus Young created the distinctive opening guitar part for "Thuderstruck" by playing with all the strings taped up, except the B. He learned the studio trick from his older brother George Young, who was the rhythm guitarist for The Easybeats.
