Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Bill Kelliher told The Skinny magazine: "This was pretty much the first song we put together. It's just a straightforward rock song. It's got its beginning – with Brent's banjo - then a verse, another verse, chorus, ending, solo. It's got a ripping solo in it that really screams Mastodon, which is rad – I really enjoy it."
