This is the third single from Daughtry's Break The Spell
album. Chris Daughtry wrote the song with frequent Aerosmith collaborator Marti Frederiksen, who has worked with the band since the mid-1990s. "He started playing the riff for 'Outta My Head' and it kind of had a 'Rag Doll
' riff," Daughtry recalled to HitFix
. "Melodically, it's not my style to do what Steven Tyler does, it's more what David Coverdale would do, so the verses have this Whitesnake feel. Lyrically, I wanted to go someplace sexier than Daughtry has gone before."
