Got Me Under Pressure

Album: Eliminator (1983)
  • In a 1985 interview with Spin magazine, ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons explained: "Everybody asks if 'Under Pressure' was about a girlfriend of mine. And if not, whose was it? Well, fortunately that kind of pressure we're not under. Maybe it's just because we got out of town on time. I just don't know."
  • This song was used in a 2008 Pennzoil commercial. >>
