The tortured 'genius' of Question Mark is summed up by two organ chords. This song still has a moronic charm, and it's amazing that the 'legend' of Question Mark remains to this day, if only in Question Mark's head. This guy has always been full of himself; he once claimed that he had actually written Alice Cooper's "I'm Eighteen" (only because one of the Mysterians early b-sides was entitled '8 Teen'). Good for a laugh, but hardly the garage classic that the Kingsmen's "Louie Louie" was and still is.
