About this song

Written by Nic Cester and Cameron Muncey.
Arranged by Paul Murtha.
Originally recorded by Jet.

Instrumentation requirements

A strong trombone section is necessary, as they have the verse melody from measure 17 to 36.

Roadmap

The actual song starts with a tambourine solo. The band usually doesn't do that because no one would hear it, nor is it included in the band's arrangement. However, it was included for the 2008 Troy Savings Bank Music Hall Concert.

History

This song has taken on a tradition similar to 142 - Gimme Some Lovin', in that the band yells "NO!" whenever it is called by the conductor.
Recently members of the band have been yelling "GO!" as a pickup into measure 9 and "I said, are you gonna be my girl?" in measures 61-62 (with pickup), mirroring the actual song.
