champ David Cook, songwriter Gregg Wattenberg (O.A.R.
's "Shattered (Turn The Car Around)
" and Rock Star: Supernova
contestant Ryan Star
. Speaking with Alternative Addiction
, Durbin recalled the writing of the track: "It was a very fun song to write. I was in Manhattan and I get to the Wind-Up studio called Rewind Studios," he said. "I get up there and I knew I was doing a writing session and David Cook ended up being there. I didn't know I was writing with him even though I'd talked to him before and hung out with him a little bit. And then Ryan Star and meeting him was cool. He's a really great singer and a really great musician. And Gregg Wattenberg showed up- he's a great writer and he does A&R for Wind-Up Records, one of the top guys there. It was a lot of fun. I had some lyrics that I'd written for an idea that had a very bullying feel to it and it was called 'Scream' and we got 'Screaming' from it. It was a very fun song to write."
