View lead vocalist Kyle Falconer explained the song to the NME: "It's a very visual song, I used to get mad visuals in his head whenever I was singing this one. We're going to use that feeling on the forthcoming tour as part of the production we will be showing video behind us to get that idea across. We've got big timpani drums recorded in the mix, which gives it an underlying power."
Said Falconer to the NME: "Turning '100 million people into 1' is talking about people getting together and unifying to solve problems. It's quite a current talking point what with all the revolutionary activity going on in North Africa. Unhappy, ordinary people are getting together and gaining a big powerful voice which is causing sweeping change."
"Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose.
