In August 2009, Pink released Funhouse as a single in the UK and it charted at number 29 in the UK Singles Chart. The song was written by Pink, Jimmy Harry and Tony Kanal.
“Funhouse” received acclaim from critics, being regarded as one of the musical and lyrical highlights of the album. There’s More Where That Came From’ gave the song an A- stating, “‘Funhouse’ has the energy of ‘So What’ but surpasses it half-way through, when the song breaks into true rocker mode. Something we haven’t seen from Pink since ‘Trouble’ back in 2003!” Billboard also gave the song a very positive review, saying “Pink again displays her versatility on this complex number, which calls for blues, funk and rock vocal stylings that few other pop stars could pull off. The singer delivers with full force, colliding with lively guitar licks and hints of synth” and giving it an 81% approval.
