Fallout

Album: Queensrÿche (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This song was co-penned by bassist Eddie Jackson. Guitarist Michael Wilton told Legendary Rock Interviews: "Eddie has always had great ideas over the years and has a lot of strength and ability in terms of the melodic end of Queensryche's songwriting. I don't know, maybe he just wasn't given the proper chance in the past but the guy loves songwriting and he loves his instrument. He's very melodically inclined and was very spot on in his writing of those lyrics and hats off to him for that. I said, 'Bring it on Ed, bring some more.' That song really surprised us, Scott and Eddie kind of put that all together and we embellished on the guitar parts but it ended up being a quick 2:45 of goodness."
