Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix
told Tommy Carroll of the Grand Rapids, Michigan radio station 97.9 WGRD the story of the song:
"We wanted to go out and just go, 'Let's go as weird and out there as possible, and start there, and then see where we land in the end.' So we wrote that song, and it didn't really fit the record all the way, so we had to do some work to it, and it finally worked its way to feeling right on the record.
We worked with new producers on this album, so that was a bold move for us. I think working with those different producers brought out different sides of us creatively. We took a look back at what we did before, way back in the day — 'What was our style back in early 2000s with Infest
, and where did we go from there?' – and looked at those evolutions and how did we pick and pull what we felt were the most powerful and compelling styles that we had and mash them together, but in 2017, 2018. 'Born For Greatness', it's definitely outside the box, but for us, we kind of just kept getting lumped in. We didn't want to feel like we were just stuck in a box. We want to make rock music a little more adventurous with this record."
