Prior to its original release, controversial track “Animal (Fuck Like a Beast)” was deleted from the album. The Parents Music Resource Center had labeled the song as one of its “Filthy 15”, songs that the group (not the public) determined to be morally objectionable. Capitol Records subsequently bowed to pressure and pulled the song. The band released the song on an independent label in the UK as a single in 1984, and it was reinstated on the album’s 1998 reissue.

The song “I Wanna Be Somebody”, released as the album’s first single with accompanying music video, achieved such success that it was ranked No. 84 on VH1’s list of the “Top 100 Hard Rock Songs” of all time.
