Ringo penned this song with his band whilst on tour. He told Billboard magazine: "We were sound checking and (former Santana and Journey keyboardist) Gregg Rolie did a thing that started the ball rolling. We jammed to it and it turned into that song after three soundchecks. We had no name or anything but it was taking such great shape that by the time we got to Biloxi (Mississippi), I called all the band down to my room and said, 'Let's write a song.' We all listened to it and tossed out ideas. We came back to LA after the tour and everybody put their parts down at my little studio in my guesthouse."
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
