  • Lyrics
  • This is the first single from Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, the fifth studio album from Danish metal band Volbeat. The record sold 39,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200. It was the first time a Danish act had charted in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 since Aquarium by Aqua landed at #7 in 1997.
  • Guitarist/vocalist Michael Poulsen told The Pulse of Radio the song was very personal to him. "I lost my father four, five years ago and I believe that every man in this universe, you know, they have their heroes and most of us are looking at our dad as a big hero," he explained. "And so, of course, I'm singing about a little boy who lost his father, and then at the same time he loses his belief in his superheroes."
