"Get Born" is the 2003 debut album by
Australian rock band Jet which, as of November 2006, has sold over 1 million copies throughout the world. [http://www.2-4-7-music.com/newsitems/JAN04/jet.asp]
Making of the album
Jet entered the
Sunset Sound Studiosin Los Angeles with Dave Sardyto produce their debut album "Get Born". Sardy had previously produced records for Marilyn Manson and the Dandy Warhols. The band left the recording studios halfway through recording the album to fly back to support the Rolling Stoneson their 2003 Australian tour.
"Are You Gonna Be My Girl?", from this album, was voted number one in the 2003
Triple J Hottest 100. "Get Born" also has a song, "Timothy," dedicated to guitarist Cameron Muncey's brother, who died when he was a baby. The track "Radio Song" was written about when they were an unsigned band in Melbourne seeking attention, and "Rollover DJ" was written about the difficulty they encountered when trying to play gigs because of the takeover of dance music.
The title of the album, "Get Born" comes from a line in Bob Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues".
Jet albums depict their take on Beatles' albums and each cover is, in its own way, a modified version of the Beatles covers with Jet members in the photos instead. "Get Born" is Jet's version of the Beatles' "Revolver".
The album was criticised for being derivative of many classic rock artists such as
The Rolling Stones, The Beatlesand AC/DC. [http://pitchforkmedia.com/article/record_review/18954/Jet_Get_Born] There were also claims that these bands not only influenced the album, but riffs and melodies from individual songs by other artists made their way onto songs from "Get Born". These included Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" ("Come Around Again"), Radiohead's "Black Star" and The Beatles' "Sexy Sadie" (which also contained lyrical content from this song), as well as elements of "Let It Be", "Golden Slumbers", "Fool on the Hill", and John Lennon's "Imagine" ("Look What You've Done"), Iggy Pop's " Lust for Life", The White Stripes's "Screwdriver", The Jam's "Town Called Malice" ("Are You Gonna Be My Girl?"), Bachman-Turner Overdrive's " Takin' Care of Business" ("Rollover D.J.") and Deep Purple's " Woman from Tokyo" ("Cold Hard Bitch"). Also, Pitchfork Media claimed ("Get What You Need") contained elements of The Kinks' " All Day And All Of The Night" and The Temptations' "Get Ready"
However, in an
Allmusic.comreview of "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?", the song was praised for its immediate appeal despite its resemblance to "Lust for Life", saying "Whether 'Are You Gonna Be My Girl?' is creatively bankrupt, or just an extreme example of how all music is influenced by what came before it, is up for debate... Either way, the song is impossible to ignore." [http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=33:y1ge4j174w74]
