Topics (not including words that are part of the title):
- obscene language
- There are two recordings which sound very similar. The re-recording is slightly faster and has the backing vocals a little lower in the mix than the uncensored mix of the original version. The re-recording is credited to Garry Lee & Showdown while the original is just credited to Showdown.
- Dr. Demento was supplied with two censored remixes of the original version, both of which have the backing vocals lower in the mix than the uncensored version. The one released on Dr. Demento's Mementos (which has the left and right channels reversed) bleeps all forms of the word "fuck" (plus occasionally an adjacent word). The radio edit (which was on a promo 45) additionally bleeps "goddamn", "pissed", "pecker", and "ball" (plus occasionally an adjacent word).
- Dr. Demento always plays the more heavily bleeped radio edit unless otherwise specified.
