Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This end credit song for The Disney Channel Original Movie Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension features none other than Slash. On the collaboration with the former Guns 'N' Roses guitarist, co-executive producer Dan Povenmire explained, "Slash is a rock icon, he's our hero. We wanted a song that encapsulated the feeling of the series as well as the movie. Slash saw the movie with his kids and he liked it so much, he said, 'Hey, let's write a song together!' It was really a dream come true."
Regarding collaborating with Povenmire, co-executive producer Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and composer Danny Jacobs on this tune, Slash said, "Working with Dan, Swampy and Danny Jacobs was just great. They're a very talented couple of guys. It was really easygoing. I had a guitar riff and they came up with lyrics and melodies instantaneously. Kids will dig it because it has a lot of energy and the song has a great hook."
A cartoon version of Slash also appears in the song's music video. Said the guitarist: "I'm a big fan of Phineas and Ferb. I watch a lot of cartoons and I think it's one of the best shows. It's well-written, very original and the characters are great. This whole experience has been surreal because I'm a big Disney fan. To be involved in this movie and having written some music for it is pretty exciting. It's an honor to actually be animated in the 'Kick It Up a Notch' music video."

Jason co-wrote many of Colbie Caillat's hits, including "Bubbly" and "Realize."

Is it goofy fun, or is there real meaning in these songs? And all about the Phineas and Ferb theme song.

Ozzy biting a dove? Alice Cooper causing mayhem with a chicken? Creed so bad they were sued? See if you can spot the real concert mishaps.

"How much does it cost? I'll buy it?" Another songwriter told Jonathan to change these lyrics. Good thing he ignored this advice.
