Johnson told the UK newspaper The Sun the story behind this song: "One of my kids said he wanted an edible watch. I asked him what in the world that was. He said: 'You know the ones that just have the numbers on them.' Then I asked him if he meant a digital watch. I had edible digital watch stuck in my head all day. When I sat down with a guitar that night the words just kept spilling out and I got Shot Reverse Shot."
