ArrangementEdit

The main riff of the song is the same as that from "Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne, played on a synthesizer rather than a guitar and transposed into a different key.[2] As with all songs from the bands debut, Deuce sings the chorus. Johnny 3 Tears raps the first verse, Charlie Scene raps the second verse, and J-Dog raps the third. The original version of the song was entitled "Out the Way" and featured additional lyrics during J-Dog's verse. Although it is unknown why these words were cut out on the final track, these lyrics are performed by the band at live shows.
