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."
"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
