This is the lead single and title track from Latino rap group Cypress Hill's eighth studio album. It was their first studio release for six years, their previous record being 2004's Till Death Do Us Part. The album was recorded over the course of three years at lead rapper B-Real's studio, The Temple, in Los Angeles.
The song was co-written and co-produced by Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello. The guitarist also contributed to a second track, "Shut 'Em Down." "It was great to work with my longtime friends and comrades Cypress Hill on these two monster rock tracks," said Morello.
Boston leader Tom Scholz went back to his job at Polaroid after releasing the group's debut album. When his co-workers kept coming by to tell him "More Than A Feeling" was playing on the radio, he knew it was time to quit his day job.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
