This is the first single to be taken from Los Angeles metallers Five Finger Death Punch's sophomore album, War Is The Answer.
Guitarist Zoltan Bathory said of this brooding track in publicity materials: "It's about seemingly irresolvable differences. It's valid in just about any setting: politics, religion, relationships… Everything is 'only an opinion' based on limited information, yet people sometimes get attached to their point of views to the extreme… in fact, to the point they would launch wars over them."
The band name's was inspired by the ultimate death blow in the Quentin Tarantino movie, Kill Bill.
Bathory explained to Metal Hammer why this was chosen as the first single: "This one was our original choice to open the album, and now of course it's the first single & video. It was maybe the seventh or eighth song that we recorded, and it was pretty obvious that it should be the first single. Y'know, radio is pretty conservative here in the States so I guess we could have led with one of the slower, more obviously cross-over tracks, but that's really a path we didn't want to go down, to launch our campaign with a slow song… Actually, it's something of a miracle that radio plays our music at all – I mean, 'The Bleeding', which had huge exposure here, isn't exactly a ballad, but it made a powerful statement both musically and lyrically, and I think 'Hard To See' is the same… a wolf in sheep's clothing!"
