It was hard for me to admit I liked this one. I like the attitude that Everlast brings as he rides Muggs' and DJ Lethal's swirling, hard hitting, versatile fast track. I think it lost favor with me because it gets played so many goddammed times. It's good and it changed what kind of tracks got played on the radio. People can dance to it. You can work out to it. You can remember your highschool days when you hear it.

The song has become a long-standing tradition in the student section and the UW student body; the song was not played during Camp Randall Stadium construction due to fears of structural instability accompanying the simultaneous jumping of so many people, almost causing riots. It has been played at every home game since. The song's title is displayed on unofficial Wisconsin Badgers clothing and apparel and even on some of a Madison-based banks' credit cards.
