This is a track from New York based dance-punk outfit The Rapture's fourth studio album In The Grace of Your Love. The record was released on September 6, 2011 following a five-year hiatus during which frontman Luke Jenner had the traumatic experience of dealing with his mother's suicide. He told Spin magazine this song was inspired by his loss: "It's dealing with the death of my mom. I had songs pouring out of me at the time and it started off as an acoustic demo. When your mom takes her own life, it's a big blow. You don't have a choice whether you love your mom or not, no matter what that person does to you or anybody else. That song is specifically dealing through that pain in some way."
Boston leader Tom Scholz went back to his job at Polaroid after releasing the group's debut album. When his co-workers kept coming by to tell him "More Than A Feeling" was playing on the radio, he knew it was time to quit his day job.
