Arguably the best cover of this song, this was released in 1990 with a rap added by G Love E care of Young MC. It does have that typical 90’s drum sound and it all kinda works. A Funky riff and a modern sound, even with a few samples thrown in at the start.
The B-side is classic Frank Zappa, weird and screwed around, an insane track!
Love the live version as part of Farm Aid (?!) back in the day, shame about the vocal mix!
