  • Along with drinking and sex, going out on the town is a common theme in AC/DC's lyrics. In this song, the setting is New York City, where the singer is enjoying the bustle of activity and the beautiful women. Whether he really does feel safe in the city is questioned in the last line, when Brian Johnson sings, "I feel safe in a cage in New York City." This turnaround is something Devo did on their song "Beautiful World."
  • The cover of the single shows a statue of Angus Young in front of the World Trade Center, which was destroyed in 2001.
  • The video for this song was directed by Andy Morahan and shows the band playing in New York tunnel with heavy security. >>
