|Alice Cooper singles chronology|
The song appeared on Cooper's album Brutal Planet, and was its first and only single. While its highest chart position was only 103 in the UK, the music video was aired several times. The song was written by Cooper and Bob Marlette.
The song is about a deal with the devil, sung from the point of view of Satan. This is a recurring theme for Cooper, and a motif he uses in songs like "I'm The Coolest" from 1976's Alice Cooper Goes to Hell and "I Just Wanna Be God" on Dragontown, the follow-up album to Brutal Planet. The lyrics also make a reference to "Nothing's Free" from The Last Temptation, another song with the same theme.
A music video was produced to promote the single.
