The Chain is among the most prominent songs by Fleetwood Mac. The song was released on 4th February 1977.
Stevie Nicks wrote some parts of the song at the time when her relationship with Lindsey Buckingham was falling apart. The Chain is about not being able to break the relationship completely because the former partners still have a bit love for each other. Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham broke up, John McVie and Christine McVie got divorced before the song was made.
The Chain is about the members of the band taking hits at each other through the lyrics and it is also the song that keeps the members connected. This is one of the best live performances of the song and it is also the official video for the song.
