Fishbone had collapsed and re-formed a few times by the time this song was released on their 2000 album Psychotic Friends Nuttwerx. They still had three original members: frontman Angelo Moore, horn player Walter Kibby, and bass player John Norwood Fisher. Moore wrote the song with three outside writers: Bridget Benante, David Baerwald, and Steven Lindsey.
In Beastie Boys' "Paul Revere," the title refers to the name of a horse. They took it from a song in the musical Guys And Dolls where a character sings, "I got the horse right here, the name is Paul Revere."
