Rockin' With The Best

Songfacts®:

  • This rap-driven song has an old-school P.O.D. sound featuring a loose backbeat and a repetitive, funky hook. Lyrically, it finds Sonny Sandoval demanding respect for the San Diego rockers' influence on rap metal.

    Who rocks the party, that rocks the body?
    I rock the party, that rocks the body


    Sandoval explained to The San Diego Union that today's youngster's are unaware that P.O.D. pioneered the San Diego sound and he's just asking they pay their dues. "It's not a 'pat me on the back' or 'pat my band on the back' (song)," he said. "I just want people and bands to show respect."
