It's Not Your Fault

Album: Coming Home (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • Chad Gilbert (guitar) told Kerrang! magazine February 16, 2008: "This one shows how we've changed. We're a band who have done different styles of songs every record. There's some really metal riffs on Catalyst that aren't on Coming Home, and then Coming Home had some pianos. We're music fans, so we want every record to sound different from each other."
  • The song's video was based on a German mobile phone advert. Gilbert explained to Kerrang!: "It starts backwards, with a guy and a girl in bed naked, and then they put on their clothes, finding them strewn as they walk, until they get to their first meeting at the end. We just took the idea and went with it."
