"Get It On" is the first single by alternative rock group Grinderman - a side project of the Australian post-punk group Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds - from their self-titled debut album Grinderman. Released on 8 January 2007, the song was received a positive reception from music critics, though failed to chart.

Critical reception[edit]

The song, alike the album itself, received very positive reviews, with SPIN noting that:[1]

["Get It On"] takes a more raw, experimental approach to songwriting, and offers fans a listen to a first: Cave as a primary guitarist. While Cave & the Bad Seeds specialize in slick, darkly sexy rumblings somewhere between the Doors and Leonard Cohen, Grinderman's "Get It On" offers a study in contrast, with its blues bravado and loud, ragged riffs.
