No One Gets Left Behind

Album: War Is The Answer (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory explained this song's military theme to Metal Hammer "I've always had a strong connection with the military. I grew up in military bases, I like military movies, and we have a lot of fans who are serving in the forces. "I guess what I'm really interested in is the concept of 'heroism' what it is that gives someone the balls to stand in the front line when the bullets are flying. People who have the capacity to do this generally have a very strong bond with other people in the same situation. Adversity creates a genuine feeling of brotherhood, and actually, that's something I can detect amongst our fans – they stick together, they look after each other in the mosh-pit, they're just a very dedicated bunch."
    He added: "'No-One Gets Left Behind' is an old military saying, like 'Death Before Dishonour,' so I guess this is a continuation of that track on our first album… Oh, and the radio broadcast you can hear is taken from the transcript of a medical evacuation that we were given by one of our fans in the forces – the code names, the numbers, it's all real."
