In an interview posted on Blabbermouth, Skillet's frontman John Cooper said he didn't realize his music was positive until recently. He laughed and commented: "When you start writing music, you're not smart enough to know what you're good at and what you're bad at. You sing it, and maybe it sucks; maybe it's good. And people kept saying, 'Man, it's really positive music.' And I was, like, 'Is it? I don't know.'"

When asked about the new single, "Legendary," he said, "It's about making your life count. You're only here for a short time. Don't get to be 80 years old and go, 'Crap! I never became who I wanted to become.' Own your life."

"Legendary" is from Skillet's album Victorious, which was released on August 2.
