Strictly speaking, this is a 2006 issue of a 1995 track that didn't have a commercial Tommy Boy vinyl release on 12" back in the day, though there was an MCA promo 12", and a commercial release a year later on the back of the film.

The tracklist is based on the CD single, and the sleeve was 'new', based on frames from the promo video (done to tie into the movie "Dangerous Minds"), which featured the track on the soundtrack.
