“This was one of those songs that kind of wrote itself,” frontman Sully Erna says of the song. “One day in the studio we were breaking for dinner and a friend of ours went out to get some food for everybody. Kind of kidding around, I said, ‘I’m going to write a song before he gets back.’ And Tony [Rombola, guitar] goes, ‘Well, you better make it a really fast riff because he’ll be back in 15 minutes!’ And I’m telling you, this song was done, front to back, in maybe an hour and a half. As far as the lyrics, when I came up with the chorus and the ‘Turn that shit up louder’ line, I started thinking, What if this was a song about us? Next year will be 20 years since we became a band, and there’s a real history there. I guess it takes a lot to see that sometimes, because you still see yourself as a fan growing up and listening to the Aerosmiths and the Rushs and all the bands you loved. But, wow, man, 20 years. It felt like enough time had passed that it was okay to have a song like this.”
The band’s new album, ’1000hp,’ is out now.
