Rock clichés like the Jesus Christ Pose
were often a target of Soundgarden's scorn, and on this track, they take aim at the many songs that use sexual euphemisms to imply sex instead of just stating the obvious. Guitarist Kim Thayil, who refers to this genre as "Butt Rock," said: "We thought we'll ditch all the euphemisms and say what all the disco dance bands had been trying to say for a decade. It's a parody of the whole genre of stupid rock."
Not everyone in the band was on board with it - Hiro Yamamoto, the group's bass player at the time, hated the song.
