Back to Where I Belong

Album: Screaming Bloody Murder (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the second single from the Canadian Punk Rock band Sum 41's fifth studio album, Screaming Bloody Murder. It was officially released on April 26, 2011.
  • Despite the three and a half year gap since Sum 41's previous release, Underclass Hero, the song writing came easily to frontman Deryck Whibley. He told Artist Direct: "I don't know where these songs came from. I don't even remember writing them. I heard them and don't remember where they came from or writing them. The whole record felt like a gift and I don't feel like I had anything to do with it, but I did, since I wrote everything. Every song I wrote came within 10 minutes and it took 10-15 minutes to get it out. I didn't spend more time on them, but the album took a long time, three years. I never sat down and said, 'I am going to write a song.' I'd be in the middle of a conversation and be like 'F--k, 'Incoming! I have an idea.' I would throw down the idea, go back to the conversation and then go through my tapes."
