My initial instinct is to call Woyote a metal version of The Police with rock radio sensibilities. I'm not sure if it's the solid drumming or the Andy Summers-type riffs, but there's just something very Reggatta de Blanc about this song. Whatever it is, it rules and you should definitely take the time to get it stuck in your head. It'll only take one listen.
"'Atlas Shrugged' was the first song of the fresh Woyote lineup," said the band. "It was inspired by the state of the world and book turned movie also called Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, though the only influence the book had on the song was the title itself.
"Atlas is the God who holds the world on his shoulders. No one seemed to notice or care is commenting on the constant state of change the humans and the world they live in go through, and the bewilderment or apathy that seems to accompany these changes. It’s a call to self awareness as the means to truly influence the world for positive change."
