  • Perhaps the most interesting element of "Party Hard" - aside from the fact that it isn't the Andrew W.K. song of the same name - is Jarvis Cocker's vocals, which take on a baritone David-Bowie-esque tone in the present song.
  • The song was the very last single off the band's 1998 album This Is Hardcore, noted for being much darker in tone than previous smash-hit album Different Class (1995). "Party Hard" made #29 in the UK chart despite being the last single off the album.
