  • Lyrics
  • Following a near-decade long hiatus, Sleater-Kinney chose the Ed Sullivan Theater as the location for their comeback performance. The Washington trio served as musical guest for the Late Show with David Letterman on January 15, 2015, delivering a full-throttle rendition of this song.
  • The music video stars Sleater-Kinney as animated versions of themselves in the world of the Fox animated TV series, Bob's Burgers. We see the threesome playing a show in (daughter) Tina Belcher's room. Tina and her brother and sister join the band in rocking out the song.
