This was originally going to be released as the follow-up to Drowning Pool's breakthrough single "Bodies
," but the band's label decided it could be too divisive after 9/11 so "Sinner" was released instead. "This is the most united we've been [as a country] in a while as far as all our differences being put aside and being pretty much together to fight the evil horde across the sea," frontman Dave Williams told MTV News days after the September 11 attacks. "So putting out a song with a chorus that says 'I don't care about anybody else but me' just didn't seem like a good move."
It was eventually released as the band's third single in early 2002.
