Louie Louie - The Clash.  An apparent tribute to the Kingsmen's version, because the Clash didn't change the basic arrangement.

PAUL REVERE & THE RAIDERS- "LOUIE, LOUIE".  Recorded April 1963, the same month and in the same Portland, OR studio as the Kingsmen's more popular version.  The song had been previously recorded in 1960 by Rockin' Robin Roberts, but all three were covers of a 1955 tune by Richard Berry.
