Songfacts®:

  • This was the last song that Buckcherry wrote for Confessions. Frontman Josh Todd told Classic Rock Revisited: "We wanted a really great song that was mid-tempo but would rip your head off when it got to the chorus."
  • The song's music video was directed by Daniel Gomez and is the first in Buckcherry's career not to feature them in a performance environment. The clip sees each band member personifying one of the seven deadly sins, the theme that inspired the album. Gomez explained. "It opens in a roadside motel where there was a murder-suicide, and the video is the aftermath. Our character comes back from the dead and walks into a tunnel that is the pathway to hell and ends up in an Alice In Wonderland-meets-Dante's Inferno tea party where six of the seven deadly sins are having a party in the middle of the forest — our interpretation of hell."
