Despite the minimal lyrics and also its abrasive tone, that “SAIL!” exclamation and stormy environment eventually gathered fans.

The tune debuted at #89 in the warm 100 in 2011, yet then dropped the end after 20 weeks, but then re-entered the charts in 2013. It ultimately reached a new peak in ~ #17, and ended up spending end a year top top the charts in its second run.

It also holds a distinction for a fanmade video being significantly much more popular 보다 the main video.

The first four chords room the very same as Foreigner’s “Cold together Ice"— a minor 6th chord, plus the fourth, adhered to by a minor 6th chord, in the exact same rhythm. The songs climate diverge.

Aaron Bruno says it’s not a Foreigner sample, though.
