Featuring fast, loud guitars, this song has a classic hard rock/metal vibe backing lyrics of frustration with bite and bile at phoniness and dishonesty. The video is a fun, mini action movie featuring scenes with comedian Don Jamieson as well as actors Ralph Macchio and Frank Dank.

The Smithereens maintain the melodic groove of the original song, adding more bottom end and their own energy and style to give this cover a modern twist. The video features scenes of the band performing in costumes from different eras interspersed with action footage from the Jean Claude Van Damme movie “Timecop”, tying the song and film together in a clever way that made me smile.
