"Good Girls Don't" is a 1979 debut single released by rock band The Knack, off their album "Get the Knack". It was a follow up to the group's #1 single, "My Sharona". Although "Good Girls Don't" did not achieve quite the success of its predecessor, it was a major hit in the United States and reached #11 on Billboard's Pop Single chart. [cite web|title=Allmusic The Knack|url=http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:kifoxqe5ldse~T51|accessdate=2008-10-03]

The lyrics, such as the refrain "She'll be telling you 'good girls don't but I do'", were considered misogynistic by some critics. Other lyrics that created controversy included the lines:

"And she makes you want to scream Wishing you could get inside her pants", [cite web|title=Don't Knock the Knack|url=http://www.rollingstone.com/artists/theknack/articles/story/5920790/dont_knock_the_knack|author=Tarnow, N.|publisher=Rolling Stone|year=1998|date=July 14, 1998|accessdate=2008-10-04] and

"An in-between age madness That you know you can't erase 'Til she's sitting on your face."

"Good Girls Don't" was also released on the compilation album "" and was part of the Carnegie Hall concert that was released on laserdisc.
