As Neil Young pointed out
, rust never sleeps. It does, however, eat away at its host, eventually rendering it worthless. Shane Volk told us that childhood memories of rusted farm equipment inspired the title. Said Volk: "I'm a farm kid, myself. And you would see these old pieces of machinery and old vehicles, and I was thinking of this one old truck that we have on our farm that's really rusted and really grown into the ground, almost. And you get that feeling of like, man, if I sit here any longer, I'm going to just be a part of this place and I'll be forgotten.
So that's really the driving thing, it was like it's now or never. So that title came out as 'Rustbucket,' just being, I'm going to be just an old truck in somebody's yard."
