Louie Louie Is Overrated

Louiefest logo Louiefest is coming! Play “The National Anthem of Rock ā€˜nā€™ Roll” with 999 other guitarists:

Attempt to set a Guinness World record of the most guitars playing the same song together. Our choice of song is the formidable Washington State rock ā€˜nā€™ roll song “Louie Louie”.

Back In Black would be cooler.

The lyrics and music of ‘Louie Louie’ describes the history of its confusing lyrics and how to play it.

Toots & the Maytals recorded the best version. A video of it is available on YouTube, including their excellent reggae rendition of John Denver’s Take Me Home, Country Roads.

  2. The Country Roads bootleg video was cool though. I love Toots (which I pronounce like the word TOO, but with a TS on the end, not Tuhts).

  3. Without Louie Louie, there would BE no “Back in Black!” Come on out to
    Spanaway, WA and have a blast with us at LouieFest ’06! We have 130 vendors, lots of food, a hotrod and bike show, 5 stages full of great music all day long!
