Album: The Church of Rock and Roll (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the lead single from Foxy Shazam's fourth studio album, The Church of Rock and Roll. It was the band's highest-charting song, peaking at #5 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs and Active Rock tallies and #20 on Alternative Songs.
  • The song was produced by Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins. The Freddie Mercury-esque Foxy Shazam singer Eric Nally's larger-than-life flamboyant style has seen him being compared with Hawkins, a vocalist for whom excessiveness appears to come naturally.
