Thunderstruck - AC/DC

Angus Young stated in the liner notes of the 2003 re-release of The Razors Edge:

It started off from a little trick I had on guitar. I played it to Mal and he said 'Oh, I've got a good rhythm idea that will sit well in the back.' We built the song up from that. We fiddled about with it for a few months before everything fell into place. Lyrically, it was really just a case of finding a good title ... We came up with this thunder thing, based on our favorite childhood toy ThunderStreak, and it seemed to have a good ring to it. AC/DC = Power. That's the basic idea.

Welcome to the Family - Avenged Sevenfold

"...We have a song, 'Welcome to the Family' — we realized for the first time in our lives that people go through this every day around the world. There is someone very close to them that they’re losing, every day. That song is, We know how you’re feeling. Welcome to our lives. That was a really heartfelt song that was written out, it’s a song that Jimmy actually came to us with musically, and I’m pretty sure he actually said “welcome to the family” when he demoed it out. And then we wrote the lyrics and made it what it is now." - Johnny Christ

Cocaine - Eric Clapton

 Eric Clapton, a recovering drug addict and alcoholic, who founded the Crossroads Centre addiction recovery center on the Caribbean island of Antigua, stopped performing the song when he first got sober.

“I thought that it might be giving the wrong message to people who were in the same boat as me,” Clapton said in an interview. But upon further reflection, he decided to play up its anti-drug elements. “It very clearly says in the opening verse, ‘If you wanna get down, down on the ground,’ I mean, that’s, I think, the focal point of the song. That’s what the song’s about, is that, you know, there’s a price.”

Lose Yourself - Eminem

"I had one day in CrossFit a few years ago where I was struggling with a heavy back squat... this song came on and I did the next round with ease and went up in weight 3 more times. My coach knows it's my song now and points it out every time it comes on!" - Megs Neyer
