According to James Michael, this Modern Vintage track is, "a quintessential Sixx: A.M. song." The Sixx: A.M. vocalist explained: "I think 'Stars' might be one of the best songs we've ever written. It does everything Sixx: A.M. does on a heightened level."
"It's one of the most aggressive rock songs we have — the tempo is a lot faster than we usually write," Michael continued. "It's one of those moments you always hope for as a songwriter, where the melody line, lyric and the track all marry. That chorus explodes — it gives me goosebumps every time I hear it, and I've heard it thousands of times."
