Rubber Biscuit

  • Lyrics
  • The Chips were the New York Doo-Wop group of Charles Johnson, Nathaniel Epps, Paul Fulton, Sammy Strain and Shedwick Lincoln. This was their only recording, and was popular in parts of the East Coast. The song is a high energy romp. The sung lyrics are mostly unintelligible, with spoken word breaks mixed in.
  • Sammy Strain later became a member of Little Anthony and the Imperials and The O'Jays. >>

  • This was one of the more popular songs for The Blues Brothers, who were the comedians John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. It appeared on their 1978 live album Briefcase Full of Blues, and was a regular part of their stage show. Members of Booker T. And The MG's backed up Belushi and Aykroyd, whose stage moves were inspired by the Soul duo Sam & Dave. Aykroyd (Elwood Blues) does lead vocals on this one.
  • This was used in the 2004 movie Super Size Me.
