The title of this thrashing song is a play on 666 being the sign of the devil – 333 being half evil. Vinnie Paul came up with the idea but had passed away before singer Chad Gray
was ready to write the lyrics. He explained:
"The lyrics embrace and recognize the feelings that most metal fans have. Being treated like outcasts and being judged for the way we look or dress. It's a reminder to all the metal fans that no matter what, you will always have a place in our worldwide metal community. With that said... Welcome to the family! We're all the root of half-evil-reppin' 333!"
