This ode to the band's home state features vocals from Suicidal Tendencies singer Mike Muir. Guitarist Marcos Curiel told Billboard magazine that Muir is an "iconic punk rock figure that played an influence on us as a band."
Curiel added in the same interview: "It's a more upbeat song about where we came from."
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
