Take It To The Limit

Album: Take It To The Limit (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • In an In The Studio report singer Austin Winkler told Blender magazine that this song "is kind of AC/DC, but a little more melodic - one of those could-be-about-a-girl or could-be-about-a-car songs. If NASCAR doesn't end up using it, they're stupid."
  • This features Mötley Crüe guitarist Mick Mars. Hinder explained in a statement: "Mick Mars was all for working with us, and being huge Mötley Crüe fans we jumped at the opportunity. We took the song to him, and he killed it! He heard the final version and said, 'It was a beautiful thing.' We went to his house, and it was like the Batcave – nothing but guitars and amps. He is a vampire and so are all of us. It was an honor!"
