History lesson

I was musicruisin; and saw this video with this caption:

The Clash's version is more familiar but this is before-Clash. The song is originally recorded by Sonny Curtis and The Crickets.

Who the fuck's "The Clash"? This is the 'familiar version', kid!

The 'Go-Go' dancers were the hottest thing goin' in the early '60s. This was before topless joints and gentlemen's clubs. These gals are probably all grandmothers now. They thought the evidence was long gone. Heh.

I'll admit to not knowing (or maybe forgetting) The Crickets did it first. Here's their version.
