Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Cowboys from Hell. By Songfacts®.

This is about Pantera coming out of Texas and emerging on the heavy metal scene. Few people would associate Texas with a band like this.

Pantera splits songwriting credits equally, since all members contribute to the writing process. In our interview with their bass player Rex Brown, he said that guitarist Dimebag Darrell did the heavy lifting on this one. "That was Dime all the way," he said. "Except I play guitar on some of that - the rhythm section that became the mid-bridge break, and also the solo part, I wrote all that. Other than that, that was all Dime."

Paul Rachman, who made the film American Hardcore, directed the video, which was shot at a club in Dallas called The Basement. "That's one of the best live videos," Rachman said in a Songfacts interview. "I went to a small club in their hometown and it was amazing. That was really what that band was about." "It was a real show," he added. "We did some playback during soundcheck and then in the afternoon just getting some close-ups, some specific shots. And then it was an actual real show with their fans later that night." Rachman also shot footage for the "Psycho Holiday" and "Cemetery Gates" videos that day.
