"It's not hard to see why 'Just Because' has been chosen as the first single," noted Classic Rock. "It has a punishing yet radio-friendly groove, plus enough gloss and polish to sit among the flotsam on MTV2. Yet unlike many of the youngsters jostling to get their spiked hairdos on the box, Jane's have taken the trouble to add a song and go easy on the quasi-adolescent self-pity."
The song was one of the most successful in the band's history. Their third number one on the Modern Rock Tracks chart, it also charted at number 72 on the Billboard Hot 100 – their only appearance on that chart to date. It was also their first top-ten entry on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, reaching number four. It hit number 14 on the UK Singles Chart, making it the band's highest charting British single.
The video features the band playing in a dome with lights flashing around the walls and ceilings.
