Committed are a six-man a cappella group who won Season 2 of NBC's The Sing-Off, winning an Epic record deal and $100K cash prize. Member Therry Thomas told AOL Music, "The song 'Break Free' was written during our college years, at a time when we faced a lot of challenges in our values and things we believed in." He continued, "The idea is that we can break free from whatever is challenging us or holding us back in life."
"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
