In a statement about the track, lead singer Taylor Momsen said: “The world has been in such a state of civil unrest. And So It Went basically comes from that vision. As a songwriter, I feel like I’m not here to preach. I use music to observe and communicate what I see around me. This song felt like the perfect storm for Tom Morello to join in and rip the sound waves apart with his guitar. It was more than a pleasure having him add his unique and defining sound to the song.”

The track is taken from Death By Rock And Roll, the band’s first album since 2016’s Who You Selling For. It’s also, notably, the first Pretty Reckless album to be made without producer Kato Khandwala. Khandwala died in 2018, following a motorcycle accident.
