This song blends radio-friendly metal with some striking soloing and is typical of Temper Temper's fluid sound. "We approached the record a lot differently this time around," frontman Matt Tuck said. "It was kind of more inspired by the way I did the AxeWound record. And that was basically: Get in the studio and write and record as you went along."
The members of Bullet For My Valentine apparently found the opening riff that guitarist Padge wrote for "Riot" really annoying. However, they still built a whole song around it.
Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" is a mashup of "Werewolves Of London" and "Sweet Home Alabama." The album it came from was released in October, 2007, but they held off until summer, 2008 for a more seasonable release.
