Album: David Cook (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This song was co-written by Atlanta hard rockers Injected. David Cook explained to Entertainment Weekly: "I'm a big fan of this band Injected, out of Atlanta. We called them up and said, can we have a run at this song and see what happens? What they sent us was a demo version, so we took the idea and ran with it. It's heavy, but still a strong melody."
