"Hook Me Up" is a song by Australian duo The Veronicas for their second album, Hook Me Up. Produced by Greg Wells, it was released as the albums lead single in late 2007 in Australia. The downtempo, electropop-dance song is a change in direction from the pop rock sound from their previous album, The Secret Life Of.... The song is about escaping reality and the stresses of life. "Hook Me Up" was well received by critics who praised the song for its dance-floor friendly sound. The song was commercially successful peaking at number one on the Australian ARIA Singles Charts, becoming their first ever number one hit. The accompanying music video for the song portrays Jessica and Lisa Origliasso in a boarding school rebellion. The song was performed live at the 2008 Australia Day concert as well as the Hook Me Up Tour in 2007, and Revenge Is Sweeter tour in 2009. The song was nominated for an ARIA Music Award in 2008 for Highest Selling Single.
