This song was Blue Oyster Cult's first major radio hit since 1976's "Don't Fear The Reaper." That's five long years, and the band needed the hit badly.

Lead guitarist Don "Buck Dharma" Roeser initially planned to release this song on his solo album, Flat Out, but was later convinced to include it on Blue Oyster Cult's Fire Of Unknown Origin." Buck sings lead on this song, as he did on many of the band's songs.
