“Butch brought this in," says Erikson. "He had the verse and chorus, and he already had the harp idea. Everybody liked it. It sounded like it could have a lot of impact. Basically, we tried to inject a lot of power into the song.
“I came up with the bridge idea, and all four of us chimed in on that. We wanted to make the last chorus totally chaotic, so I opened up the gate and ran a pulse through it. The whole song sounded like it was out of control.
“I think I played a Tele on the verses and a Strat on the second chorus. There may have been an SG involved. The template for the song was When The Levee Breaks. We did kind of a funked up take on that. It was even bigger sounding at one point, but the rhythmic pattern was getting lost, so we brought it back a notch or two.”
