Rev Theory (formerly known as Revelation Theory) is an American hard rock band based out of New York. This is the title track and first single off their third studio album, which was released on iTunes on October 25, 2010, and to radio stations on November 2, 2010.
Rev Theory wrote the song in 2006 along with the band Mercy Fall, with whom the New Yorkers toured. "We wrote the tune together, and they actually ended up demoing it themselves," guitarist Julien Jorgensen recalled to Billboard magazine. "Then they got dropped by Atlantic and we were like, 'That song's perfect for us and for our time right now.' It's indicative of everything we were going through in the music industry; there's this feeling of vindication, like it's about getting what's ours. So we figured it was time to put it on our album."
