Ram Jam were a short-lived band from New York City, and this was their only hit. While the lyrical content is pretty standard folk/blues material - about a black woman from Alabama who has a "wild" child, Ram Jam took some heat because some civil rights groups felt the lyrics were disrespectful to black women. While the lyrics can be deconstructed, Ram Jam's version is driven by the powerful beat and aggressive tempo, making it one of those songs that gets your heart beating faster It was the quartet's only Top 100 record. As already stated, Spiderbait's covered version reached in Australia, and that was for three weeks on May 23rd, 2004.
