Not the Bo Diddley song, either.

as some of the commenters observed, it sounds very Velvet Underground-ish. Sort of similar to "Sister Ray".

Yes, the band themselves said they were imitating Velvet Underground.

But, still good imo.

Happy Holiday!

P.S.

Thanks, did not know that was Bo Diddley's song!

Just enjoyed listening to the 1960 version!
