When Yoakam first saw the scene that used this song in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," he noticed an odd coincidence. The redneck bar that Arnold Schwarzenegger's cyborg character enters while naked was a San Fernando Valley cop-cowboy club called the Corral, where Yoakam had once performed regularly for a year. That era of playing traditional country music in L.A. -- Nashville thought he was too country -- inspired this song. "I was in L.A., wandering around," he said. "I'd been here nine years, driving air-freight trucks, furniture-moving trucks, trying to get somebody to notice the music." Eventually, he found fans among punk crowds.
