“It’s a real surprise song for this album. It’s probably my favorite song that I’ve ever written.”

I like it, I mean it's suicide to drive with this song but the vocals are very well done, which is pretty much the whole song. Could be awesome live too. Concerning the Dubstep I'm glad they made it laid back. Most of the dubstep fusion stuff we hear is just people still playing their genre and cranking up the low/high tone triplets.

Speaking of low/high tone triplets, imagine hundreds of people hearing "the 2nd law..." at a concert and make rat faces.
