June 15, 2009 1:34 PM ET

This summer is shaping up to be extremely busy for all-girl rock group the Donnas: Not only will the Palo Alto quartet venture out with Blondie and Pat Benatar for a joint tour, they'll also release their eighth LP Greatest Hits Volume 16 on July 7th through their own Purple Feathers label. The disc will feature the Donnas reworking older tracks, unreleased B sides, live versions of their greatest hits and never-before-heard songs from the band's early days. Grab its killer first single, the pissed-off "Get Off," one of two brand-new tunes recorded for Greatest Hits Volume 16 right here. With its throbbing bass line and Kiss guitar licks, "Get Off" churns with the energy the Donnas brought to past hits like "Take It Off" and "Fall Behind Me." More tracks from the collection are streaming now at the Donnas' official MySpace. For the free download and the Donnas' road dates with Blondie and Benatar, keep reading.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
