The song was also included on the international version of the Divinyls debut studio album Desperate in 1983. "Boys in Town" became a success in Australia where it entered the top ten, peaking at number eight

Divinyls formed in 1980 fronted by lead singer Christina Amphlett. After scoring several gigs in pubs and clubs, they were discovered by Australian director Ken Cameron, who was in the midst of making the movie Monkey Grip based on the novel of the same name by Helen Garner. This discovery led Divinyls to providing the entire soundtrack for the film and also offered Amphlett a supporting role playing a temperamental rock singer based on herself. The song "Boys in Town" was released from the soundtrack as the band's debut single and garnered commercial success when it charted in the top ten on the Australian singles chart. It was the first song that Amphlett and McEntee had written together.
