The Guardian weighs in.

At that stage the group were performing covers such as Baby It’s You, 24 Hours from Tulsa and some rhythm and blues favourites. But new material soon came from Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley, floor managers at the BBC who had begun to write songs in their spare time. They heard the Sheratons and offered them some new material, including Have I the Right.

Meek immediately cottoned on to the song’s potential: the Dave Clark Five had just had a No 1 UK hit with Bits and Pieces, and he thought a similar stamping beat could be employed for the chorus of Have I the Right. Anne thumped the drums heavily and Meek overdubbed some boot stomping from the rest of the group on the studio’s wooden stairs.
Things that a fella can't forget...

Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?
