Behind the Beats and Lyrics...
- Def Jam - Beastie Boys record label at the time this song was recorded
"The guitar on [She's on It] is kind of wimpy..." - Adam Yauch, 1986
"B-Boys liked it because it was really loud. The fact that there was a guitar in it didn't matter as long as it was loud. I kept saying 'Speed up the tempo, speed up the tempo!'" - Michael Diamond, 1986
"I would have to cringe and say [that this] was one of the most embarassing moments we've got to live with." - Michael Diamond, July 1994
"We recorded [She's on It] before opening for Madonna on her 'Like a Virgin' tour. It was one of two songs that we would perform to the boos and shocked expressions of her audience every night." - Michael Diamond, 1999
"[a] block-rocking stomper" - New Musical Express, 1999
