  • Hunger Games has a storyline of a group of teenagers sent on an annual televised battle to the death. White told Digital Spy concerning this song: "Joy and I have read all the books and are big fans so we had a firm grasp about what we wanted to go after. We had the imagery in our head of rapid motion and the chase and so we had that energy in the back of our minds when we wrote the song. We're really proud of it."
