One of the few KISS songs written by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley together, as Stanley wrote lyrics to a song Simmons had originally wrote called "Stanley the Parrot". Stanley would show some of his Bob Dylan influences in the lyrics.
A fan favorite over the years, the song has been played at numerous KISS concerts and has appeared on various KISS albums such as Alive! and Smashes, Thrashes & Hits. The band also recorded a new version in 1978 titled "Strutter '78"
The song appears as one of the tracks of classic rock radio K-DST in the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and is also a playable song in Guitar Hero II.
