This song originated from a jam session when the band was touring. Satriani told Music Radar: "We were backstage jamming before a show, and I started playing the opening guitar sequence. Chad and Mike joined in, and then Sam walked in and began singing, 'Alright, alright, alright!' We recorded what we had right there, and everybody looked at me and said, 'Joe, you're going to finish that, right?'"He continued: "When I was working on it later, I was trying to figure out a way to give it more guts. It's a light kind of a chorus, so I wanted to bring it down and give it weight. I gave it a Stonesy sort of a verse and some funky key changes for the solo."
Sammy Hagar discussed the songwriting process for Chickenfoot III during an interview with SoundSpike: "Mostly Joe and I write the songs, but there are three songs that are band songs. Those are the ones where we just got in there and played them. Just made it up on the spot. The rest of them Joe and I co-wrote before we all got together. Joe brings the music and I listen to it. He's so prolific, when I say, 'OK, Joe. Let's get together next week. You want to bring me a few ideas?' He comes with a CD with about 20 ideas. Not just ideas, almost finished musically. An intro, verse, a bridge, a chorus and an outro and an ending. I have to listen to hear what I can relate to. I write melodies and lyrics and that's how I write."
