The Pliers - Bam Bam
and for those of you who are wondering, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the PS2 is what I was referring to. My real permit expired back in September. Crap.
Here's some versions the same song by its original band, Toots and the Maytals:
I like both of Toots and the Maytals' versions, and I've no clue which one came first.
Oh, there's also a version with Shaggy . . . look it up yo'self. I'm not in a Shaggy mood - don't think I ever was haha.
I think that the next album I buy will be a Toots and the Maytals album. They have a lot of good songs that have been covered by lots-o-groups. I'll save that for another post.
Finally, here's a Sister Nancy version, which I also enjoy:
Now, the thing bothering me about this version is that I think I've heard this bass-line before, but WHERE from? The first thing that came to mind was Sublime - Scarlet Begonias. I'll investigate later.
Bottom line: Me sa want ta bam bam.
