Ok but very over rated!
****
A bit overrated but it's a good track.

Surprisingly quite good.
****
It annoyed me how long it took for this song to get charting, but it's a good song.
******
By far their best, great rocking track.
******
So awesome, their best by a mile.
****
Trying to get full appreciation of this. When heard on the radio, it has some good jammin' bits, but as it is such loud-rock other parts verge on noise.
Probably best as a live track.
******
Classic track by Wolfmother!
******
Awesome Song, very loud.
****
Cool song.
*
Whenever I hear this song, I can't help insterting an incredibly sharp knife into my throat...
****
Solid Aussie rock.

Only giving this a 4 because I feel they've made better songs than this.
******
Awesomeness!
****
4 stars
***
The guitar work is cool but I don't think very much of anything else contained in this track.
******
Awesome track. My favourite from them.
***
The less I hear it the better it is. Their best track ever though. 3.2.

I have loved it ever since it was new, and I have been addicted to it recently mainly because of how brutal it is. Sure some of it becomes noise because it gets louder in parts, and I absolutely understand the people thinking that it is overrated to the point that they would seriously consider inserting sharp knifes into their throats (MitchellNineSeven good one), but you wouldn't think a song this heavy would chart at all in Australia, and if it did chart it would chart very poorly.
The debut of Joker & The Thief inside the top 10 was one of the biggest surprises I have ever seen on the charts. It doesn't happen all that often, let alone to an Australian rock band. And one thinks why it didn't happen earlier, because they had a lot of buzz for more than a year and it appeared on the Triple J Hottest 100 almost a year prior in the top 10.
It was a breath of fresh air at the time, because it it is radically different to the pop music that charts week in week out in Australia. To hear elements of hard rock, heavy metal and psychedelic rock in a song that charted this high on the ARIA charts was a massive shot in the arm for Australian rock!
