"You Wouldn't Know" is about the difficulty of maintaining one's integrity in the profit-obsessed music industry. "Thank You" is a tribute to all of the band's recently departed family members: Vinnie Paul's brother Dimebag Darrell, Tom Maxwell's mother, and Chad Gray's grandmother.

The album debuted at #9 on the Billboard 200, selling 45,000 copies in its first week.[5] As of September 26, 2007, it has sold 188,670 copies in the U.S.
