Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single released from Volbeat's sixth album, Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie. Guitarist Rob Caggiano told the HardDrive with Lou Brutus radio show about the track: "First off, that was definitely the first song that we hashed out," he said. "We actually started playing… We were playing half of that song on the last tour we did, just to kind of try it out and see how it worked, and the fans seem to really dig it. We played it once in its entirety in Denmark, the last show we did, and it went over great."

    "But lyrically, I'm not totally sure how it fits in with the [album concept]," Caggiano added. "It's something about the son of Satan. [Laughs]"
  • Volbeat performed the song live in full for the first time on August 1, 2015 in front of over 37,000 people at Tusindarsskoven in Odense, Denmark.
