Songfacts®:

  • The biggest surprise of Reckless and Relentless is this catchy song with absolutely no screaming. Guitarist Ben Bruce described it to the Associated Press as, "A straightforward slab of radio rock that's free of breakdowns, screaming and synth breaks."
  • Vocalist Danny Worsnop told Artist Direct about the song: "I don't listen to heavy music. I don't like screaming and all of that stuff. I'm into my rock 'n' roll. I talked to the guys and I was like, 'I really want to put an all singing rock 'n' roll track on the album.' That was as close as we could get to releasing a straight-up rock track."
  • Speaking to Fallen Blue, Worsnop said the song was the first one, "that I wrote the lyrics to using my emotions as a backdrop." He also told Artist Direct that the track contains, "stuff about my family and being a crap person to a lot of people."
