This track originally appeared on the soundtrack for the 1992 film Singles. The film's director Cameron Crowe wrote in Rolling Stone that the song is "about battling with your instincts in love."
The song was originally recorded during the sessions for Peal Jam's debut album Ten, featuring the band's original drummer Dave Krusen. That version is included as a bonus track on 2009's re-issue of Ten. Pearl Jam bassist and co-founder Jeff Ament told Billboard magazine that he feels the original that Dave Krusen played on is "vastly superior to the one that's on Singles." He added: "I don't think I fully appreciated what Krusen brought to the band at that point. He really plays that song in the spirit it was written in. It's has a much trashier, Crazy Horse feel to it. It's awesome."
