An addendum to the above:
The Pixies version of Boom Chick A Boom was performed during a radio broadcast at WJUL studios (University of Lowell), December 1986. The bootleg album is referred to as either The Fallout Shelter or The Fallen Shelter. This song was never released.

This is the early days of the Pixies since, from the interview, we know that they are still looking for a record company, and Black Francis is still "Charles Thompson").

I don't think I've ever even listened to the Pixies. Just did some easy research. :)

And now, the real reason for this writeup:
Here's a variation on this song that was part of our road trip repertoire when I was a naive, pure, and innocent Junior Girl Scout.

The leader shouts out the line and the nubile little girlies repeat in unision.

   I said boom! 
   I said boom chicka-boom! 
   I said booma-chicka-rocka-chicka-rocka-chicka-boom! 
   Uh huh! 
   Oh yeah! 
   One more time... 

One you get the basic verse out, it's time to move onto playing with your singing style. Let's start with these (relatively) easy variations:

   Underwater: Sing with fingers dribbling against your lips 
   Loud: As loud as you can! 
   Slowly: As slow and drawn out as possible 
   Opera: Sing in an opera voice 
   Tongue in Cheek: Literally!
