Like “Louie Louie,” “Hey Joe,” and “Wild Thing,” this song was covered many times. As far as I know it was never a big hit, but it should have been. I’d be hard pressed to pick which of these three is best, so I posted them all. The versions by Them and The Troggs come with each band’s usual strengths. The Haunted’s version is a raw gem (I don’t know anything about them past this song). There are numerous other 60’s versions, including one by the MC5. To my ears, none are competetive with the three above. Richard Hell also covered it later, but I hear nothing special in it.
If you haven’t heard this song but it sounds familiar, that might be because Beck lifted the main riff for Devil’s Haircut.
