Quote from Taylor Momsen:
"The world has been in such a state of civil unrest, "And So It Went" basically comes from that vision. When the youth have finally had enough and rise up. 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"
