This was the first single Andrew W.K. released after being signed to Island Records. They signed him after a few years of his solo gigs around New York City and other parts of the east coast.
This is about the party lifestyle he endorses. Andrew's philosophy is to not put limits on yourself and get the most out of life. Years later, Andrew became a popular speaker and TV personality, often playing off the image he created with this song. In 2012, he hosted a panel called "What Would Pinkie Pie Do?" at a My Little Pony convention.
The album cover depicts Andrew with blood pouring down from his nose. It sparked controversy because the record company thought the bloody nose was supposed to have come from snorting too much cocaine.
This is just one of several Andrew WK songs with the word "party" in it. Others being: "Party Til You Puke" and "It's Time to Party."
The video, which showcases the intense energy Andrew puts into his stage show, garnered buzzworthy status on MTV.
In October 2001, this was released in England, where the single debuted at #14. The album wasn't released in the US until March 2002.
