  • Lyrics
  • This is one of the most macho and aggressive tracks on VHS. Vocalist Sam Harris commented during a track by track commentary that musically, it "draws on a lot of our influences from when we were kids growing up, like Rage Against the Machine and Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nine Inch Nails and those really hard rock bands."
  • The song started off sounding totally different until producer Alex Da Kid made them change course. Harris told Pop Monitor: "The song had like a totally different version. Really poppy and upbeat. We played it for Alex and he said: 'It sounds like a Kelly Clarkson song!'. (laughs) So it became this masculine song."
