Songfacts®:

  • HIM lead singer and songwriter Ville Valo told the story of the song to Artist Direct: "It was an acoustic ditty I worked on for a long time," he said. "It came together at the rehearsal space really quickly. It reminds me of some of the older music we've done like 'Soul on Fire.' I wanted to go full-blown Kyuss with the riff. I love that stoner stuff. Joshua Homme is one of my idols when it comes to guitars and riffs. We wanted the song to be dirty and grunge-y and a bit of a middle finger. It's a statement of intent. It's still pretty and has a lot of melody, but it's dirtier."
