  • Lead singer Corey Taylor told Kerrang! July 19, 2008 that this song is "basically my way of introducing myself back to the world, and looking around and going 'wow!'." He added: "I never really try to take credit for stuff but there are a lot people out there who have been inspired by what we do, so this is my way of going 'fair enough, but if you're not gonna keep up then don't even try to run with me!'"
