Making of the album[edit] Jet entered the Sunset Sound Studios
Sunset Sound Studios
in Los Angeles with Dave Sardy to 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 Stones on 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
Get Born
also has a song, "Timothy", dedicated to guitarist Cameron Muncey's brother, who died when he was a baby (the song has also been remixed for American rapper Timbaland's 2009 album Shock Value II). 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 album's name was derived from a lyric to the Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan
song "Subterranean Homesick Blues".[3] Critical reception[edit]

received generally positive reviews from contemporary music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 70, based on 15 reviews.[14] Alternative Press gave it a rave review and found Jet's songs "catchy" and their appeal "diverse".[5] Q magazine said that the album's raw immediacy "belies its dated influences."[10] Uncut called it "an efficient if fairly joyless hybrid of the Stones, AC/DC
AC/DC
and Oasis."[13] In a negative review, Pitchfork Media
Pitchfork Media
wrote that Jet sounds like "everyone's favorite old rock bands" and have "insipid lyrics", including interjections such as "Come On!" and "Oh Yeah!" sung "every five seconds".[9] Robert Christgau of The Village Voice
The Village Voice
cited "Rollover D.J." and "Look What You've Done" as highlights and remarked that the band has "the juice and talent to make their retro happen without the brains or vision to run with it".[15] He gave the album a two-star honorable mention,[7] indicating a "likable effort consumers attuned to its overriding aesthetic or individual vision may well enjoy."[16] In October 2010, Get Born
Get Born
was listed in the book 100 Best Australian Albums.[17] Lead single[edit] The album's lead single, "Are You Gonna Be My Girl", was often singled out due to distinct similarities to Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life". The song featured a near-identical guitar riff, as well as a drum pattern markedly similar to that of Pop's well-known song. The band argued that "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" had more in common with '60s Motown, however; namely, songs such as "I'm Ready for Love" by Martha And The Vandellas and "You Can't Hurry Love" by The Supremes. In an Allmusic review of "Are You Gonna Be My Girl", the song was praised for its commercial appeal despite its resemblance to "Lust for Life", saying "Whether 'Are You Gonna Be My Girl?' (sic) 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."[18] Chris Cester addressed the media speculation in a Jared story interview for Uptown Magazine Online,[19] stating: "It's funny because I asked him point blank about that. He said I was crazy. He said that when he and David Bowie were writing 'Lust for Life', they were ripping off Motown's beat. It's funny that he said that to me because we also thought we were ripping off Motown more than 'Lust for Life'. To be honest with you that kind of annoyed me a lot, because I always thought it was really lazy. People just go well 'Lust for Life' is more well-known so that's what they go for, but if you listen to a song like 'You Can't Hurry Love' (The Supremes) I think you'll find it's closer to 'Are You Gonna Be My Girl' than 'Lust for Life' ever was. And that's what Iggy said as well."[19] Track listing[edit]
