The inspiration behind the songs of British dubstep production duo Chase & Status originate from a variety of different sources. This track was inspired by a concert featuring some late '80s hard rock legends. Saul "Chase" Milton explained to Artist Direct
: "I was reading Slash's autobiography. I'm a big Guns N' Roses fan, and he wrote about this legendary gig thing they did at The Roxy in New York in the '80s. I found the exact footage, watched it, and it the beginning there's this cool little speech that Axl Rose did. I lifted that and put it in 'Smash TV.' That basically inspired the whole thing. Everything and anything brings inspiration and that's the beauty of being able to make music for a living."
