. . . And We Run . . .

The idea of putting rap verses on the song came from guitarist Robert Westerholt, who personally enjoys the genre. Xzibit came to the group’s mind due to the fact that he was already featured on crossover works with metal bands such as Korn and Alice Cooper, plus Westerholt desired to have a rapper with deep vocals to contrast den Adel‘s melodic vocals. The band’s management disagreed with the idea of the inclusion of a rapper at first, fearing a career drop for the band. Xzibit himself commented that he was surprised by the invitation, and had to check out the band’s previous works, having had no prior knowledge of them.[3] When Xzibit heard the demo for the song, he accepted the request.[4] The rap verses were written by Xzibit himself, as the band wanted them to be original and coming from the rapper’s perspective.[5] The collaboration was met with high criticism initially, as it appeared to deviate far from the band’s original musical style, but then the song received unexpected praise after release.[6][7] According to band member Ruud Jolie, the song received negative criticism even before its release due to the collaboration. After the release, although, he noted some positive change of opinion.[8] Otherwise, den Adel found that the opinions about the song were polarized.[9]
