The cartoon, produced by Goodby, Silverstein and Partners and presented in the style of 1920s era animation, features the comically exaggerated sexual adventures of a cat named "Smutley" and ends with the message, "He has nine lives. You only have one. Protect yourself."
The song is also used as the walkout song for former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey.

"Bad Reputation" was recorded by Canadian singer Avril Lavigne for a video montage interval in her Best Damn Tour. The studio recording of the cover was later included on the deluxe edition of her fourth studio album Goodbye Lullaby and on the Japanese edition of her fifth self-titled album. It was then reported on 17 October 2012 that Lavigne would be contributing two cover songs to the anime film One Piece Film: Z; the latter studio recording and a cover of Nickelback's "How You Remind Me". The song was released for the film only in Japan on 11 December 2012, as a digital download on the One Piece Film: Z Original Soundtrack. After heavy radio airplay, the cover peaked at No. 8 on the Japan Hot 100.
