"Go Your Own Way" is a song by Fleetwood Mac

Lindsey Buckingham wrote this as a message to Stevie Nicks. It describes their breakup, with the most obvious line being, "Packing up, shacking up is all you want to do." Stevie insisted she never shacked up with anyone when they were going out, and wanted Lindsey to take out the line. He refused.

Stevie Nicks told Q magazine June 2009: “It was certainly a message within a song. And not a very nice one at that.”

While the Rumours album was being recorded, the marriage of John and Christine McVie (both of them Mac members) was also coming to an end. With 2 couples breaking up during the sessions, recording could be quite tense. They were also doing lots of drugs at the sessions, making sure there was plenty of Behind The Music material.

This was the first single from the album, which became one of the best-selling of all time.

Fleetwood Mac is not known for their guitar solos, but Lindsey Buckingham's solo on this is one of his most notable. The live version on The Dance contains a much longer solo. (thanks, Don - San Jose, CA)

National Car Rental used this in commercials as part of an advertising campaign based on the title.
