  • This defiant empowerment song is part of Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider's heavy metal solo album, For The Love Of Metal:

    The rain is nothing to fear
    When you become the storm

    Snider explained in a Songfacts track-by-track interview: "More motivation and inspiration from your ol' Uncle Dee, this time with an eye toward the bullies of the world. While much of my music in the past has been indirectly aimed at these assholes (I mean, who weren't we gonna take it from?), this issue has come much more to the forefront for me in recent years and I want to confront it head on.

    But unlike others who naïvely believe that somehow, magically, words will stop bullies from further action, I know better. The only thing bullies understand is a superior show of force. Become the storm... and rain down on those mutha f--kers!"
  • The guitar solo on this track came courtesy of Charlie Bellmore of Kingdom Of Sorrow. Other contributors to the album include Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage) and Mark Morton of Lamb Of God. It was produced by Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed.
