Song meaning[edit]

According to Rick Dejesus, the song is about overcoming challenges: "When we wrote it, it was more for the state that everyone was in, everything, the country. People were saying that we were in a recession and I had the feeling like, man, you know what, we're the United States, man, you know. We've always been the strongest, we've always been the most powerful, we've always been the smartest and, you know, "Invincible" is a song that I wanted everyone to break through the wall and break through the barrier."[2]

In addition to providing the song to WWE Superstars, the song is also featured in the THQ video game, WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010.[3] The band also performed "Invincible" live at the 2009 WWE pay-per-view The Bash.
