This was the first single INXS released with their new singer, JD Fortune, who wrote the song during the INXS Rockstar
reality show in 2005 as one of his tests when he competed to become the band's frontman. He used to work in Las Vegas as an Elvis impersonator, and based on his talks during the show, he doesn't have very fond memories of it. The song points out the grungy side of Vegas that tourists are too starry-eyed and drunk to notice.
