Put That Record On

Album: The All American Nightmare (2010)
  • Both this song and the accompanying music video are a tribute to all the bands that Hinder grew up listening to, with references to The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith, Rainbow, Bob Seeger, Ozzy Osbourne, and AC/DC.
  • Vocalist Austin Winkler told the story of the song, which he wrote with drummer Cody Hanson, to Hardrock Haven: "It was kind of funny, I was actually sitting in my house when I started that song, I had the first line and I knew there was something there to this song. I had the first line and I brought it to Cody and I said, 'There is something here isn't there?' He said, 'Yeah.' So we came up with a concept to write a tribute to all off our favorite artists and songs that inspired us."
