This track features Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, one of a number of guests that feature on Device's eponymous debut album. Other artists that make contributions to the set include Halestorm's Lzzy Hale, System of a Down's Serj Tankian, Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler, Avenged Sevenfold's M. Shadows and Black Country Communion's Glenn Hughes. "With Disturbed we never had guest appearances. It's just not been a part of what we do," noted vocalist David Draiman to Billboard magazine. "With Device there were no rules or preconceived notions or conditions, so I was like, 'What the hell, let's do something we've always talked about doing' and it was great."
