About a Song: Beartooth Open Up About “Hated”


Beartooth‘s new album, Aggressive, recently tore up the charts upon its release, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Chart, marking the band’s first No. 1 on any Billboard chart. What’s more, Aggressive reached No. 3 on the Billboard Rock Album Chart and No. 25 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Not too shabby for these loud and profound Ohio rockers!

One of the standout tracks on Aggressive is “Hated,” a song that promotes individuality in the face of ignorance. Riffyou.com loved the song so much, we tracked down Beartooth vocalist and songwriter Caleb Shomo and asked him to tell us about the song’s inspiration, as well as how it came together.
