Songfacts®:

  • This is about getting back at people who treat you badly. Around this time, Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit would bash Creed lead singer Scott Stapp at shows. The lyrics, "At least look at me when you shoot a bullet through my head" mean if you're going to bash me, do it to my face. The song was basically written about Durst. >>

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjNevertheless, It was an awesome video...
  • Austin from Smallsville,new England, --Creed spent losts of money on the music video and it turned out to be a major flop with not a lot of airplay in the U.S. Around this time many critics were critising Creed and compared them unfavorably to Pearl Jam.
  • Trenton from Flatwoods, Kythis song is really awesome! except for the beginning, i think all those weird sounds are pointless.
  • Chauncey from Omha, Newho cares about Durst?

    he BLOWS as a singer/rapper

    anyway, Creed totally nailed this song and its great!!!!
  • Joseph from Toastville, OhYeah this song rocks, Dont believe it was about Durst though, just people who bashed him in general.
  • Jeremy from Chicago, IlThis Song Is Asome, I often put songs on, that display how I feel, and this is one, I would put on if someone, was talking sh.. behind my back
  • Rony from Houston, TxThis song? Fred Durst? THPTPTFT!!! I spit in your general direction!
  • John from Sydney, AustraliaBrad, you told us that it's not about Durst, but that's not all that helpful unless you tell us what it's really about.
  • Brad from Gansevoort, Nyok who runs this site? ..... i am the ultimate creed fan tell me any song i can tell u the album it's on ,how long it is and everything even the date it came out and i own every almbum 2 times (1 is for backup) but he did not write this song about durst i can tell u that!...
  • Dude from Tx, TxThe guitar work in this song isn't hard, but its fast fingerwork gives the impression of a maniac about to shoot someone.
