"Bathroom Wall" is a glam punk song taken from Faster Pussycat's first album Faster Pussycat released in 1987. Like much of the band's material from the album, it has a comedy side and deals with graffiti left on a bathroom stall wall that Taime Downe saw backstage at a gig the band were playing prior to getting signed. This song sound more glam punk than glam metal. Since it was the band's only glam punk song they ever did.

The single's B-side song "Cathouse" was written about the "Cathouse club" in Los Angeles, a club owned by vocalist Taime Downe and future Headbangers Ball VJ Riki Rachtman. This song was featured in the 1987 Penelope Spheeris film, Dudes.
