Hell Don't Need Me

Album: Extremist (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The lyrics for this song are a little different than anything vocalist Ryan Clark has ever written. He told Decibel magazine: "They walk the line between more poetic but also somehow more laid-back than usual."

    Clark added that he especially likes the fluid guitar lead that Patrick Judge added over the chorus. "I think it really adds to the melancholy nature of the song," he said.
