Charted: 29

Songfacts®:

  • This was the first single to be released from the Australian drum and bass band's second studio album In Silico.
  • Rob Swire, Pendulum's producer, writer and singer told The London Times that he earmarked this song to be the In Silico track that would work best commercially. He added that, "it ended up doing my head in because I just couldn't get it right. 'Granite' is the biggest nightmare I've ever written. It could have turned out a lot better." The interviewer asked Swire what was missing. He replied: "Sanity. I lost it, man. I usually spend a week, two weeks, finishing a track. And 'Granite' was about two or three months. I'd be finished with it then I'd wake up, hate it, delete it and do something else completely. Just a nightmare."
  • The song features in the quad-bike racing video game Pure.
