Background

The Misfits had formed in January 1977 in Lodi, New Jersey with a lineup including Danzig (who also played electric piano), guitarist Jimmy Battle, bassist Diane DiPiazza, and drummer Manny Martínez. Both Battle and DiPiazza left after a month of practices. Jerry Caiafa was brought in as the new bassist, but the band was without a guitar player for six months.[1] Danzig therefore used his electric piano to fill out the rhythm on the two songs "Cough/Cool" and "She", which were recorded in June 1977 at the Rainbow Studio and mastered at Spectrum Sound in Brooklyn, New York by Rich Flores. By the time of the single's release in August 1977 the band had added new guitarist Franché Coma and Danzig phased out the piano in favor of singing exclusively.

Caiafa's surname was misspelled on the single's sleeve as "Caifa",[1] leading him to insist that from then on he be credited as "Jerry, only Jerry". "Jerry Only" soon became his pseudonym, which he has continued to use throughout the rest of his career.

The subject of the song "She" is not mentioned in the lyrics, but Misfits associate Eerie Von noted in The Misfits box set in 1996 that the song was about Patty Hearst.[2] The lyrics reference Hearst's participation in a San Francisco bank robbery in 1974: "She walked out with empty arms, machine gun in her hand/She is good and she is bad, no one understands/She walked in in silence, never spoke a word/She's got a rich daddy, she's her daddy's girl".[2]
