This was penned by Buckcherry for the soundtrack of the 2012 movie The Avengers
, though it was originally intended for the band's Confessions
album. Guitarist Keith Nelson told Artist Direct
: "We basically had the opportunity to be a part of the movie. We understand and appreciate the size and weight of having a song as part of a soundtrack. When we were approached, we were actually in writing mode for Confessions
. We'd been working on a few ideas, and Stevie (D) had this riff that seemed appropriate. We had just started writing 'Wherever I Go' and thought it would be a good candidate for The Avengers
though, so we finished it with that in mind."
