This song is the consensus fan favorite among all Biohazard recordings. This was a significant period for the band: the Urban Discipline album was their only recording while under contract with Roadrunner Records. The label's niche for catering to major Heavy Metal bands gave the group worldwide exposure and credibility.
In the live video performance, Live At Full Force 2008, the intro unfolds and you can imagine a diabolical soundtrack for a march of evil forces. It holds in place for a nearly a minute setting the mood. Upon leaving the intro, the song's time signature races ahead as a backdrop for the lyrics. Evan Seinfeld shouts his words in a one way conversation he has with a mysterious higher being. His delivery leaves no doubt that Seinfeld is doing all the talking. In his prelude he questions, "Come on God, answer Me. For years I'm asking you why? Why are the innocent dead and the guilty alive?"
The tempo changes are many and come without warning. Thirty-seconds of solid guitar feedback kick in at the 1:48 mark. Seasoned guitarists will never let go the infatuation from striking a note and standing in front of the amplifiers as a wave of sound washes over.
The official video for this song will forever hold the record of being played more than any video in the history of MTV's beloved Metal show Headbanger's Ball.
Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
