It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since Cobra Starship took the neon-pop scene by storm with their third album Hot Mess. The band called it quits in 2015, but we’ve been jamming these iconic tracks ever since. The dance-worthy anthem “Good Girls Go Bad” features Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester and a chorus that has lived on in our heads for a decade.
A timeless track like this is hard to forget. It’s time to put that “Good Girl” knowledge to the test with our “Good Girls Go Bad” lyrics quiz below!

The former frontman revealed how the “Good Girls Go Bad” track came together and discussed his cameo in Gossip Girl.
“What happened was we had that song, [and] we had a bunch of other songs. That was, to me, the strongest song. We were working in a studio in New York, and they’re like, ‘Oh, we have to cancel your session tomorrow because one of the Gossip Girls is actually coming in.”’I’m like, ‘What?”’He was like, ‘Yeah, we got to move you guys around.’ I’m like, ‘I’m all right. I’ll let you cancel my session if you get her to agree to feature on one of our songs.”’I said it as a joke, and it ended up becoming a reality. The best song that I had was that, and I thought it would be perfect for that. So that’s how it happened. And by the way, I was a huge Gossip Girl fan before that. It was like a joke. Kids would bring me ripped DVDs of Gossip Girl on tour so I could watch it in the bus. I was [also] on it at the very end—the last episode of last season.
It’s just like you have this outcast, troublemaker kid going for the good girl, you know? And that’s embodied with like, ‘Hey, we’re a Warped Tour band getting a chance to do a song with a Gossip Girl.’ It was like, you know, the queen. It’s Blair Waldorf, and so yeah, I think that’s what resonated. It was charming, it was funny and it was a good song, you know?”
