Four years after Skynyrd released Last of a Dyin' Breed, we find ourselves in an election year again. Skynyrd often incorporates commentary about world events in their songs, as they did in the case of "Something to Live For." 

2012 was also an election year, and Skynyrd was inspired by all the talk and drama associated with it. That inspiration ended up finding a place in the track "Something to Live For," which is one of the most powerful tracks on the album.

In another behind-the-scenes clip, lead singer Johnny Van Zant explained that they wrote the song about the everyday people who keep our country strong. "But it's a hard time for America, so we need you politicians to stand up and do the right thing for us common folk," he said.
