  • According to Pantera bass player Rex Brown, the band had a specific sound in mind when they came up with this song. "We needed, like, a shuffle," he told us. "After we did the 'Walk' thing, that was kind of, 'Well, we need one of those. We need something that's heavier than hell, but it's got to have that good thump to it that you can sing along to.'"
