So What!

Album: Forever More (2008)


  • Tesla guitarist Frank Hannon told the story behind this song: "The music actually came to me when Tesla was overseas in Amsterdam, and we were playing in this legendary club called the Paradiso. In the basement there was this really super old glass piano in the hallway. I just sat down and immediately started playing the chord progression for A Minor to E, to G to D and is like a descending line, kind of like The Beatles. That part came to me, and I wrote a song around that which ended up being the versus in,'So What'. It has some different kind of changes and the lyrics are sassy."
