In his review, Richie Unterberger says of the song, "[I]t's a great track, gripping the listener immediately with its sudden, springy guitar chords and thundering, offbeat drums.
That unsettling, urgent guitar rhythm is the mainstay of the verses. The Breakfast Club. Crime Junkie. If you can never get enough true crime The Piketon Massacre.
