This is the opening track of American Metalcore quintet Atreyu's fifth album, Congregation Of The Damned.
The song is based on a Joe Rogan comedy sketch in which he sees humans as a plague on the earth. Vocalist Alex Varkatzas explained in publicity materials that he empathizes with Rogan's plight. He said: "When you fly into LA it's all green and beautiful but when you hit the city the air is putrid. It's a big black spot and it doesn't fit into the natural geography. Lyrically, it's as if we're this predatory organism talking over and killing everything. Mother nature would be better off without humans walking the earth."
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
