In their native UK, this was the last single from The Darkness' debut album Permission to Land
; it charted in April 2004, more than a year after the album's first single, "Get Your Hands Off My Woman
," touched down on the chart. By this time, the group was collecting gongs for their 2003 accomplishments: they won BRIT awards for Best British Album and Best British Group, and earned the Ivor Novello Award for Songwriters of the Year. They had a hard time getting it together for their next album, which didn't appear until late in 2005. The following year, Justin Hawkins left the band, shuttering the group until 2011.
The single wasn't released in America, where The Darkness didn't break through like they hoped.
