Heffron Drive was formed by vocalist Kendall Schmidt and guitarist Dustin Belt in 2008 after the pair met each other by chance. The duo came up with their moniker after realizing they lived on the same street in Burbank, California - Heffron Drive. After a short period Kendall joined Big Time Rush and Dustin played as the touring guitarist. They revived the project in 2013, after the last Big Time Rush show was completed.
Kendall explained the song's meaning: "It's about two people who are made for one another," he said. "They are always around each other, walking in parallel lines, but never seem to meet up. The song asks, what if one day, the stars finally align and their paths cross."
"I've always been a hopeless romantic and often wonder if I have already met the person I'm going to end up with," Kendall added.
Angus Young created the distinctive opening guitar part for "Thuderstruck" by playing with all the strings taped up, except the B. He learned the studio trick from his older brother George Young, who was the rhythm guitarist for The Easybeats.
"We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" by Taylor Swift earned an entry in the 2014 edition of the Guinness Book of Records for the fastest-selling digital single. It reached the #1 spot on iTunes just 50 minutes after its release.
