The A side to the Replacements' first single, this Paul Westerberg song also showed up on their debut album, Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash. It was, according to Westerberg, the first song that he was proud of and a watershed moment in his songwriting. "It was an actual song with a beginning, a middle, an end and a bridge," he recaled. "Also, it was melodic and it rocked. It had everything I wanted and it was easy to write." Leaving in the "trash," the song was recorded live in the studio with few overdubs.
