In a statement, Wes Verhoeve of Engine Room spoke about the initial idea, "A lot of really great bands were being dropped from the major labelsÖand we thought it would be a cool idea to have bands like that cover some of the acts that were actually being supported by the majors. The bands that were approached were all very enthused by the whole concept, and many of them even had a song in mind right away."
