About this album

The House That Dirt Built is the second studio album by The Heavy. It was released on October 13, 2009. The title is a reference to the nursery rhyme This Is the House That Jack Built. Vocalist Kevin Swalby explained in an interview with Songfacts that the song “Sixteen” was inspired by a time when he was working a lot as a DJ and he would see 16-year-old kids sneaking into clubs. “Short Change Hero” is featured in the 2010 movie Faster with Dwayne Johnson and the opening theme of the Sky1 show Strike Back.

The album’s songs were also used for several video games. “Short Change Hero” was featured in a trailer for the 2011 video game Batman: Arkham City, and later opened the 2012 video game Borderlands 2. “How You Like Me Now?” was also featured in Borderlands 2 and the 2011 racing video game, Driver: San Francisco.
