The seemingly personal nature of the song makes it unsurprising if they did eschew it in live settings. Delivered in a mix of spoken-word and singing, the song was the closest thing to a single on the record.
And hey, what do you know? There was a video! It has always bothered me that the chant repeats only once when the song seems tailor-made for at least a few more repeats. The Hot Rock seems to show that band realized that Dig Me Out had perfected their original sound and now it was time to go elsewhere. All Hands on the Bad One would seek to grab a hold of poppier elements of indie rock to various degrees of success and One Beat would try their hand at more obvious but still subversive political commentary, but both would be missing something.

The sun, ocean, and cosmos build the imagistic single, "Get Up".
Tucker works through primal desires—"Do you think I'm an animal? Am I not? Sing-song guitar-pop turned up alongside plainspoken take-downs of sexism in music, and hints of new wave, girl-groups and Go-Gos mixed cohesively, too with some of their hardest whiplash-rippers.
