This riffy working man's anthem originally was written as a heavy rock number. Kid Rock told Billboard magazine how producer Rick Rubin persuaded him to transform it into more of a organic R&B based rock and roll song to go along with the rest of Born Free. Said Rock: "That started out as a really heavy rock and roll thing, and then when we got in there with Rick he said 'let's channel some of that Muscle Shoals type of thing, keep it true with what we've going on the record.' He was really cool about the continuity of the record, without telling people what to play at all He's really good at setting up the vibe. Even in the studio, if he said 'wow, that might be the worst thing I've ever heard,' he'd laugh about it. There was never any screaming or yelling, it was always 'let's do it a different way.' Then when we'd hit one, he'd say, 'that was no joke, see you guys tomorrow.'"
