This is a track from No Cities to Love, Sleater-Kinney's first album after a decade long hiatus. Corin Tucker wrote the song to capture the struggle and triumph of reviving the band. She explained to NME: "That is definitely written with the idea of the moment when we were talking about being a band again. And what an incredible opportunity and a giant challenge that is to me - being a mom and trying to have this really intense career."
The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
There was a rumor in the Soviet Union that The Beatles had secretly visited the U.S.S.R. and given a private concert for the children of top Communist party members. They believed the song "Back In The U.S.S.R." was written because of the concert. Actually, some fans still believe so.
