An early Pop Evil song, "100 In A 55" was written and released before the band signed to a major label. They had been hustling in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for years, playing cover songs to pay the bills while developing their own music. In this track, frontman Leigh Kakaty sings about going full speed ahead, hoping it will pay off:I still believe in this rock n' roll
And I pray the music's gonna save my soul
"I never wanted a desk job," he told Songfacts
. "I just couldn't do it. So I knew early on in life what I didn't want to be."
He and the band got their wish when "100 In A 55" took off in their home state of Michigan and got them signed to a major label.
