This punk fuelled track was released as the first single, along with "Absolute Zero
," from Stone Sour's fourth album, House Of Gold And Bones: Part 1. The LP is the first part of a double concept set, and frontman Corey Taylor told Metal Shrine that he had the idea to put together a record revolving around one theme for a while. "I've had the idea for the concept for a few years actually, but I've never given myself the time to really flesh it out and see it clearly," he said. "It was right about the time when we did the Sonisphere shows that for some reason "Boom! it & hit me! I saw it as clear as day, beginning, middle and end. I knew the characters, I knew the world that I wanted to create, I knew what I wanted to do."
