This Gold Cobra
track originated from a beat made by the band's turntablist DJ Lethal. Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland
told Artist Direct
the story of this song: "He sampled a snippet of me screwing around on guitar in the studio awhile before we wrote the song and put it over the beat. It's a wild metal-sounding riff. He brought it in and everyone said, 'Wow, we should really let that one out of the cage, grow, and put some more parts on it.' We started working on it, and the sister song to that is 'Bring It Back' because it has the programmed beat and more metal riff. Then, it has the bigger open chorus that's more of a full band experience. We were really trying to push that hip hop metal thing in a place where the guitar and the beat are more polarized than they've ever been. The knobs on each area got kicked up to super metal riff and super hip hop beat."
