The sexually suggestive song was best known for its opening drum solo, near motorcycle-like drum fills and its music video featuring the band as both adults and young students in a high school. The Parents Music Resource Center protested it, calling for it to be pulled from both the radio and television, due to the song’s sexually suggestive lyrics referring to sex with a teacher, and a female teacher stripping in the video, among other issues. In 2009 it was named the 36th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.
The ending of this song comes from a studio outtake from the band’s club days, entitled “Voodoo Queen”.
It is also the last single released by Van Halen with all four original members involved (David Lee Roth left in 1985 and rejoined in 2007, while Michael Anthony left in 2005).
