Songfacts®:

  • 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.
  • The song is featured in the video game NHL 14.
