This is the title track of American Rock band Shinedown's fourth studio album. It is named after a flower native to South Africa that grows in desolate environments flowering in adversity.
Drummer Barry Kerch explained his interpretation of the song to Alternative Addiction: "It's about the rebirth of this band, Brent (Smith vocalist & lyricist)'s meaning might differ slightly in that it contains the thoughts about his girlfriend who helped him through a difficult time but those two things kind of happened at the same time and it really encompasses the band."
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
