Vocalist Jonny Hetherington explained to Gibson.com why this is his favorite track on Vices and Virtues: "'Get Thru This' is a song I wrote a few years back when my father was diagnosed with cancer, and it was a really horrible moment in my life. He actually survived and he's cancer-free now, so it's a big celebration for me every time we play that song, and it's become very special to me."
The tune dates back to 2009 when it was used as the theme song for the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view-wrestling event.
Jay-Z's 2012 "Glory" features his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's cries and coos. At less than two days old, she became the youngest ever credited artist to feature on a Billboard chart when the song debuted on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at #74.
