Songfacts®:

  • Michael Sweet said of this track: "The song takes you back to a time when guitar heroes ruled the airwaves and melodies soared. The thought was to bring back the late '70s/early '80s with a modern twist and remind people of one of the best eras in hard rock/metal."
  • The song's music video was the first released by the band. It was shot in Los Angeles and directed by Devin DeHaven (Rick Ross, Whitesnake, Kiss, R. Kelly). The clip shows Sweet and Lynch performing the song together amongst imagery that corresponds with the lyrics.
