"Rattled by the Rush" is Pavement's first single from their 1995 album Wowee Zowee. The song also appears on the EP Rattled by la Rush, issued the same year.
The promotional video made for this was banned by MTV after being played on 120 Minutes due to its nature, in which the camera zooms in and spins so fast around the band, who are playing in a subway with a harmonica player, that it would induce dizziness within the viewer. The band made a safer version of the video, which uses the same shots, but they're played on the tiles of a bathtub, in which somebody is running and a can of Drain-o can be seen on the bathtub. That version is still played on MTV rarely.
The song (or similar riff) can be heard in Friends as the cutscene music, although only the beginning guitar part. The main riff of the song is also similar to Dancing Days by Led Zeppelin.
MTV's Beavis and Butt-Head criticized the video when they watched it, imploring Pavement to "try harder, dammit! Try harder!"
