Hinging on hard-hitting grooves and airtight riffing, the track snaps from visceral verses into an instantly chant-worthy growl of "In a world that teaches eye for an eye, I'll show you how to survive!" It's an instantly raw 'n' real, pit-stirring anthem.

"'How to Survive' is an anthem for those who have been the receiving end of unmerited and targeted hatred and abuse," said singer and bassist Aaron Pauley, offering a deeper insight into the impactful song. "It's for the kid who was bullied, beat up, and ignored in school. It's for the teenager who was told that they'll never amount to anything and that their thoughts, feelings, and opinions don't matter to the world. It's for the person who has been told that they're worthless, useless, or not good enough, time and time again. It's for the person who's repeatedly been targeted by those who only seek to tear others around them down."

He further stated, "This song is for them. This song is for me. I am them, and I'm still standing. So, turn it up. Feel the rage. If you, too, are that person, you will know it well, and it will greet you like an old friend."

This is band is Five Finger Death Punch for teenagers who haven't developed the requisite meth addiction that leads to Five Finger Death Punch fandom yet.

Apt description for the track. "Battering ram of a song" implies that it is unwelcome, which is true.

I really connect with this singer. I wonder if he went through the same bullying I went through. In 6th grade, Everyone started making up rumors about me. That I was a freak and that I was gay. One time in the bathroom. Conor, Max, and Titus were in there, the 3 biggest guys in my class. They were comparing dck sizes. They made me show mine and said they've seen bigger dcks on hamsters. They laughed and said "We'll make it bigger" (more laughing) They took turns sucking it I was embarrassed.
