Annotationen

Erster Hit-Song, der aus Powerchords gebaut war. Der einflussreiche verzerrte Sound von Dave Davies' Gitarre entstand nachdem er den Lautsprecherkegel seines Gitarrenverstärkers mit einer Rasierklinge sufgeschnitten und zusätzlich mit einigen Stecknadeln versehen hatte.
Der Song war anfangs eine jazzige Nummer, wurde dann aber stark von Louie Louie beeinflusst.
