Sang it with my band when I was 15. Never could get the lyrics right.

It's undeniable. The 5th being minor is the money shot.

The Kingsmen's version is the one that's been covered to death and as far as I'm concerned nobody's come close to bettering it. Despite the fact that every garage band - including a bunch that are better bands than the Kingsmen - had to try it once.

Yep, bought it when it came out (and a lot of their follow-up singles, too). It was like it was from Mars, heard nothing remotely similar before — Richard Berry's original, where you can hear the words, was still in my future
