Black shiny FBI shoes pour into the Jamaican roots of the The Kingsmen’s cover of the Richard Berry tune Louie Louie. In 1965 an outraged parent penned a letter to RFK, then the Attorney General of the US, stating that the lyrics were obscene. After two years of investigation by the FBI, the Feds concluded that the recording was unintelligle and the song played on and rock and roll history was cemented and we all fell in love with songs we had no idea what hell they were talking about and we laughed we sang we interlocked arms and belted Louie Louie at 4 o’clock in the morning…Me gotta go
