"Going Out" was the first single to be taken from "In It for the Money", the second album by Britpop band Supergrass. It was released in February 1996, and reached #5 in the UK Charts [ [http://www.strangeones.co.uk/music/45_05.htm The Strange Ones Supergrass Site ] ] [ [http://www.music-city.org/Supergrass/biography/ Supergrass biography : beginnings, career, success] ] . Apparently the song was originally written in the key of E, because the engine of Supergrass' tour bus would tick at that same musical pitch [ [http://www.strangeones.co.uk/press/articles/mq960300.htm The Strange Ones Supergrass Site ] ] .

"Going Out" caused problems when Danny Goffey accused Gaz Coombes of basing the lyrics of the song on himself and Pearl Lowe's (his then girlfriend) involvement in the British tabloids. [ [http://www.strangeones.co.uk/press/articles/ms991001.htm The Strange Ones Supergrass Site ] ]

Music Video

*Director: Dom and Nic

The music video was filmed on a bandstand in Battersea Park (the same bandstand is pictured in the video for "Late In The Day"), and features Supergrass in coats and scarves (due to the cold) playing the song in question. As the middle eight begins, the camera shows a framed photo of Gaz Coombes with Ronnie Biggs (the infamous train robber), which then pans out to Rob Coombes with a thermos flask at his side. Rob is also reading a newspaper entitled the "Evening Rooster", with the headline "SUPERGRASS EAT ROAST DINNERS" and a picture of the band underneath that; he looks over the edge of his newspaper sinisterly as the camera focuses on him.

The band are then seen watching themselves on the bandstand from varying levels of a tree, cradling Labrador Retriever puppies in Dalmatian patterned blankets. They are then shown playing with a larger mongrel dog on the grass, and as the middle eight finally ends, the camera goes back to Supergrass performing on the bandstand, only now it is nighttime. The camera then moves to the roof of the bandstand and into the plain black of the night sky, and the end of the video is marked with the caption: "GOING OUT/SUPERGRASS".
