19th Anniversary of ‘Get The Party Started’ by P!nk

On this day in 2001, ‘Get The Party Started’ was released as the lead single from P!nk’s second album, ‘Missundaztood’.

It was a Top 5 hit around the world, and became P!nk’s most successful song of her career up until that point.

The song was written and produced by Linda Perry, who contributed to more than half of the songs on the ‘Missundaztood’ album, and who also makes a brief cameo appearance in the ‘Get The Party Started’ music video as a bartender.
