The name similarity used to mean that Adams received numerous request for the track during live sets, which kinda pissed him off. The performance is a not-so-subtle nod to Adams' unhappy response to a heckler, asking him to play the song, 13 years prior at the same venue (Adams' point blank refused to continue until security had removed the heckler; he later told SPIN that the incident sparked a string of therapy sessions). Now that he's seemingly over the whole scenario, Adams' acoustic rendition has been welcomed with open arms.
