  • This straight-up rock party song was written by Pink with Billy Mann ("Stupid Girls") and Butch Walker (who also worked on Pink's I'm Not Dead album).
  • The song's theme is that there is nothing wrong with going wild with your gal pals once in a while. Pink commented on her website: "I'm with the Hindus on that one. Pleasure for pleasure's sake is not a guilty sin."
  • In Australia, this was released as fourth single from Pink's fifth studio album, Funhouse. It's one of the more upbeat tracks on the album to offset the heartbreak tunes inspired by the singer's near-divorce from husband Carey Hart.
