Album: For Your Entertainment (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This hair-metal stomper is the opening track from 2009 American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert's debut album, For Your Entertainment.
  • This was one of four tracks on the album, which was helmed by A-list producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Kid Rock). Cavallo also worked with the 2008 Idol winner David Cook on the album he recorded after winning the show.
  • The song was penned by former Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins. Lambert told Rolling Stone why he recorded this track: "It has a classic rock riff to it that I thought was so sexy. Another band that was a major reference was Queen. You hear that influence in a couple different songs, and the chorus of that song, I wanted the harmonies to sound like Queen, I wanted it to be really full. Also, bands like Sweet used to do that with their vocals, Glam bands. I just wanted to show people I had a sense of humor with this s--t. It's fun, it's supposed to be kind of campy."
