The theme of the single is "Nervousness of the Countdown till the End of the 20th Century".[1] The title track was used as a theme song for the Maxwell Cassette Tape UD@017 commercials. For the title track, the band used a double bass drum and a distortion guitar played by Nile Rodgers' bandmate Brad Gillis. [1]

The single reached #1 on the weekly Oricon charts, selling over 398,000 copies. Because 260,630 copies were sold in 1990, the single also reached #42 on the yearly Oricon charts for that year.
