  • Speaking with Artist Direct, Joe Garvey said the song's guitar work came from him and his bandmates trying out and for this they dropped down to A-tuning. "It felt like we were Korn for a minute," he added, "ripping out these low-end riffs that were as fun as hell to play."
  • Lyrically, this finds the Oklahoma City hard rockers catering to their female audience. "You've got to keep the chicks happy," Garvey told Artist Direct. "They're the ones who keep the guys at the concerts [Laughs]. It's way easier to get along with a bunch of girls anyway [Laughs]."
