This remix most notable difference was the Smoke on the water-like intro, and a slight more dense mix.
There were various version of this record. First, there are two sleeves with the same graphics, one red-coloured, and the other one (later pressing) is yellow. Second, the label design are also different.
The French version was made because reference to Acid were banned from radios in FRance : so the words "Acid rock" were replaced by "Active rock" in the lyrics. How silly! There even was a french release of this record with only the French version and Instrumental mix, labelled "Active rock".

This release should actually be styled as "New Beat." New Beat was a short lived genre coming mostly out of Belgium. It was techno house - only slowed down to a lower BPM'd tempo, and sometimes slightly on the industrial tip. A lot of releases used "dirty" sexual samples. Karen Finley samples were used alot. This was one of the only tracks that crossed over to radio and was probably the biggest New Beat track. It was listed on alot of the New Beat compilations, some of them on early "EBM" or "Electronic Body Music" compilations. Some of the versions of this track included a "Smoke on the water" electronic intro. Absolute classic - you must have this release if you respect the history of techno. It was released several times. I have several copies of this, I remember one has red graphics, another orange. I also have an extremely rare "live version" release of this album, only a few thousand being released.
