In addition to the standard 7" and 12" formats (the latter of which included a sleeve which could be opened up in to a poster), a fan-shaped picture disc was also released in the UK. The B-side to the single was "Far Too Hard", a song from the band's first album.
The single generally received positive reviews, being described as "appealing" by Ira Robbins while Ned Raggett of Allmusic said, "When Burns commands at the end of the chorus, 'Kick it right down, right down!' it's as memorable as mass media pop of any stripe ever gets."
