La versione dell'Iguana della canzone di Richard Berry portata al successo dai Kingsmen. Il testo è riscritto in chiave di satira politica e pacifista. Iggy l'aveva già incisa con gli Stooges (ma con un testo diverso) nell'album Metallik K.O. del 1974. Questa versione proviene invece dall'album "American Caesar" del 1993.

And now...the news:
Louie louie
Oh baby I gotta go
Louie louie
Oh baby I gotta go

The communist world is fallin apart
The capitalists are just breakin hearts
Money is the reason to be
It makes me just wanna sing louie louie

Louie louie
Oh baby I gotta go
Louie louie
Oh baby I gotta go

A fine little girl is waitin' for me
But I 'm as bent as Dostoevsky
I think about the meaning of my life again
And I have to sing louie louie again

Louie louie
Oh baby I gotta go
Louie louie oh baby
I gotta go

Let's give it to' em right now
Oh man, I dunno like...health insurance
The homeless & world peace
& aids & education ... i' m tryin' to do right

But. ..hey
Life after bush & gorbachev
The wall is down but something is lost
Turn on the news it looks like a movie
It makes me wanna sing louie louie

Louie louie
Oh baby I gotta go
Let's go
