Guitarist Brent Hinds wrote the lyrics for this song. He told Kerrang! magazine: "It's essentially just me daydreaming about Hallow'en, but I think this song is funny, y'know? Talking about drinking, gasoline and snorting speed – how is that not funny?"
It was never a big hit, but "She's A Rainbow" became one of the most popular Rolling Stones songs in the digital age when it started showing up in commercials (iMac, Photoshop), and TV shows (American Horror Story: Coven, Ted Lasso).
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
