Shaddix told Loudwire
why Papa Roach chose to release this song about his struggles of trying to make it in music and life as the lead single from The Connection
. "It is the most important statement for the band," he explained. "I think it just says a lot about P-Roach. It's about my personal life, my highs and lows and what I've gone through and I'm a f—in' survivor dude. I'm a fighter. I think it's taking a challenge and I'm always willing to step up to it and I'm not going to go out without a fight. And P-Roach, we're the band that no matter what we're f—ing up against, we're gonna prevail. I think we learned that from our early days as a rock and roll band, when every record company told us, 'No, no, no, no,' we're like, 'F— you, we're gonna keep on doing it.' It got us to where we're at now and we've maintained that hustler spirit, that fighter spirit, that warrior spirit. And I think it's just a great statement to put out as the first single on this record. It's got the right energy and the right message."
