The Muffs were given a few songs to choose from for Clueless
and picked this one because it was the catchiest. They never learned to play it live until they were asked to be a part of the 20th anniversary celebration of the soundtrack's release and were expected to perform the song. Kim Shattuck, lead singer of the pop-punk band, explained to Culture Brats
why The Muffs abandoned the song for so long: "The lyrics are really stupid. It's very embarrassing to sing them. I just had an attitude about it because I didn't write it... It was just kind of weird and awkward for us to play it but once we started playing it, we realized people really enjoy seeing us play that song and the fact that we didn't really play it was kind of rebellious for no reason."
