Reign Of Terror's big ballad finds vocalist Alexis Krauss gently singing, "It didn't have to be this way." Multi-instrumentalist Derek Miller's dad was killed while on a motorcycle trip in Canada and this song's lyric has Miller saying goodbye to his departed father.
Derek Miller directed the melancholic video with Gregory Kohn, who previously worked with the pair on their "Comeback Kid" and "Demons" clips.
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
