Songfacts®:

  • This cry for freedom from regimentation was co-written by the Go-Gos' drummer Gina Schock, who also provides background vocals. Other artists Schock has written for include A-Ha, John Mellencamp and Debbi Peterson.
  • Cyrus explained to ABC News that she felt nervous before the release of this album, as it was much more personal than her previous record. She said: "It's my breakout record... To finally not be hiding behind a wig or a character. I'm like 'OK, this is really gonna hurt because these are songs that I've written that are really important to me and things that I want to say.'"
