Of course, this was the perfect setup for her singalong favorite, 'I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked,' which was met with pumping fists, synchronized clapping and a sudden rash of shirt removals.

And just to prove how punk she really is, she ended it all with a raucous cover of Iggy Pop's 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' -- twirling and writhing to reveal that yes, she was wearing matching pink undies.
