Songfacts®:

  • This bellicose rocker is the title track to Children of Bodom's fifth album. It finds lead singer Alexi Laiho looking for a fight. In our interview with Laiho, he explained: "It was inspired by one of those mornings where you wake up with a cast on your hand and a black eye - having realized that you've done something a little stupid. One of those things. Mornings like that were part of my life sometimes."
