  • Lyrics
  • This ferocious track was released as the first single from Yeah Yeah Yeah's debut album, Fever To Tell. It became the band's first Top 20 hit in the UK, where it peaked at #16.
  • Singer Karen O recorded her trademark feline yelps and banshee wails twice on this and the other Fever to Tell tracks. She told NME: "We did all the tracks twice once with me totally wasted and then again with me sober. Then used whatever worked best."
  • The video was directed by Patrick Daughters, who is best known for his Grammy-nominated visual for Feist's "1234." Much of it was recorded at Bristol University Union's Anson Rooms on March 1, 2003 but there also scenes shot at other venues during the same UK tour, including The Zodiac in Oxford.
