Singled Out: Spider Rockets
Our song "Going Down" was first called "Bitch Slapped" and I remember sitting with Eric Rachel, our producer and showing him the idea for the song. He just looked at me and said, "you may want to change the title of that one." I thought that was funny as hell, but it got me thinking. The song is about power but I didn't want it to be predictable. I toyed with having a double meaning take place in the lyrics and liked the way it was coming out. The double meaning brings out two polar opposite emotions. As it turns out "Going Down" became our active rock single.
Our other single in the metal market, "Gasoline," had a working title called "Razor Blade Kisses." I am not sure even why except I liked the way it sounded. The song is about what makes someone tick, what gives them fuel. It comes out in a personal struggle in the song. The emotion behind the song is like gasoline to a car. We tried working the chorus in a few different ways to make the song come to life. Finally, our producer, Eric Rachel suggested dueling male/female vocals. That made all the difference and the tension in the verses explodes into the vocals in the chorus.
