Revolt

Album: Infiltrate the System (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • This antiauthority anthem came out of a bit of improvisation. Madball's guitarist Mitts told us: "We were in the room together and we were kind of stumped - we were just looking for inspiration. My singer (Freddy Cricien) looked over at our drummer (Ben Dussault), and was like, 'Yo, kick a beat. Play a beat right now. Just play any beat that comes to your head.' He started playing a rhythm, and then we started punching out a riff over it.

    But it started from the drums out, and that was definitely a unique approach. We never did that before. The song came out cool."
