Lead singer and guitarist Robb Flynn was adopted at birth, something he has struggled with. He told LA Weekly that for the longest time he hated his biological parents and never wanted anything to do with them. He wrote this song as a "f--- you" to them."
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
