Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Aaron Lewis told Artist Direct: "That's an angry track. I'm sick of hearing people complain about this country. I'm over it. Travel anywhere else in the frickin' world and then come back to the United States, you won't complain so much."

  • Eddy from Forest Park, GaStaind is very pro military troups and support them at all their shows. I believe a lot of this song is about those that are protesting them once they get back from their tours or protesting in general
