A track from the punk band X's debut album, this song got the most attention, as it was about a lurid combination of sex and drugs. Explaining how the song was often misinterpreted by the slam dancing throngs at their early shows around Los Angeles, X guitarist John Doe
in 1980: "'Johnny Hit and Run Paulene' is about a guy who takes an imaginary drug that allows him to have sex once an hour for 24 hours. It's about rape, forcible intercourse and s--t like that. I see people getting into it like, 'Yeah, hit and run...' I'm saying this happens a lot, watch out for it, be aware, don't give in to it. Don't think I'm condoning rape!"
