In his memoir Never Surrender..., frontman Biff Byford says they played this uptempo track a lot in 2005, adding it's about someone on death row who was meant to be executed on a Thursday, then wasn't, then another date was set, and he got another reprieve: "I thought, 'that must be f--king awful - just get it over with.'"
He continues, "A lot of people won't twig that, and just like the sentiment behind the title. But it doesn't really matter, does it; people like the song, and that's what counts."
He gives no indication who this unfortunate might be, but it was probably someone in America.
The group composition appears on the 1980 Strong Arm Of The Law album wherein it runs to 4:42.
