Waylon Jennings does a version of this ("Big Mamou") that is insane. The drums on it sound kind of like the drummer rolled the kit down a hill.

Alright, Joan Jett! I was just thinking about this song earlier today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm Jeezy:

I wanted to be productive today. Then I had to clink the link to the left leading to a 20 page treatise on the use of tambourine in the Beatles' music.
Damn you, Michael Shelley.

"When she said 'How about it, Ace?' / I said 'Okay, baby-face!'" has to be one of the most brilliant lyrical turns I've ever heard.
Avatar 12:51pm Jimmy Wipper:

Best version of "Powerhouse" ever:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Parq:

Sure sounds like America to me.
  1:03pm jean:

FYI, serge franklin's song is NOT a pro-kkk song. Mostly deriding it's members as hungry for TVnews coverage of themselves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm G:

You wondered about the KKK lyrics. I haven't transcribed them from the record, but this is a transcription off the WWW, at www.bide-et-musique.com... , translated into English. I'd say it's pretty anti-KKK :-) --

Here they parade all dressed in white
On their way the guys are hiding from my street
They put a hood for more fun
On their chests they sew a blood red logo

Take your beatnik, bring your kids
Car will meet the famous Ku Klux Klan

They choose a softer meadow grass
Who lives frolic many generations
After eating, having a good laugh
They all start round and everyone prays
They invoke Lucifer their most beautiful voices
To raise the joy
Oh are burning the cross

But in their beautiful decor
There fatty papers
And empty bottles of Coca-Cola
It is the cream, old girls, governors
Who dream of lynching, to spread terror

When they insulted races and religions
And well-fed hatred, disillusionment
They return home soon
They open the TV
To see the face they
the news
