Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Joey Belladonna singing about democracy in the United States and around the world. According to guitarist Scott Ian, the song is "very much about people taking the power back."
  • Musically, this is one of a number of fast-paced songs on the Worship Music album. Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante told us: "It was funny, because we were just in that frame of mind. It wasn't a song that we were forcing ourselves to write. It's just these are the riffs that were coming out and these are the ideas that I had. And I was just in that mode - I wanted to thrash again."
