Written in 1984, long before shootings were commonplace in American schools, "The Homecoming Queen's Got A Gun" was actually the B-side of "I Like 'Em Big and Stupid" and became a hit after being played on the Dr. Demento Show. As a result, "The Homecoming Queen's Got A Gun" is remembered as the A-side of the single. Music Critic Jonathan Taylor called the song "one of the most delightfully silly singles and videos of the past few years." But after the Columbine High School shooting, Julie admitted in a 2000 interview that she doesn't feel comfortable performing the song. "I can be very sensitive about whether I am doing something that will hurt people. So you are always drawing the comedy line of what you will or won't do."
