The A. V. Club - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

"That song was originally called "Hurt And Heartache," and it was Mutt who said, "That's a bit of a wishy-washy title, isn't it?" Steve wrote most of the music for that song. We had been inside a paper factory just outside Sheffield in the middle of winter, sitting on crates, freezing our butts off, just trying to come up with songs that were just, you know, stage two of our career. More of the same, if you like. The dynamics that got put into it during pre-production when we were working with Mutt lifted it to a different level. We rewrote the lyrics - we sat down with Mutt and rewrote the verses, stripped it apart and rebuilt it."
