The song has been covered many times, including by the Beatles for the 1965 American album Beatles VI. They recorded it along with the Larry Williams cover, "Bad Boy", on the same day. Paul McCartney has stated that he believes this song to be one of the Beatles' best recordings. It features loud, rhythmic instrumentation, along with John Lennon's rousing vocals. In the UK, it was included on the Help! album (1965).
Ian MacDonald criticised the song as "an unprepossessing shambles of ersatz hysteria and jumbled double-tracking", saying it was "little better" than Williams' "drab twelve-bar boogie" original.
