  • The Electric Six originally recorded this in 2001. After the band signed to XL Records, they re-recorded it, and the song hit #2 in the UK in 2003.
  • Jack White of White Stripes contributed backing vocals to the 2002 re-recorded version. The band claimed their guest singer only sounded like White, and was really an auto mechanic named John S. O'Leary.
  • This was featured in the 2003 film Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. >>
