A brilliant, rocking surf guitar song by Dick Dale and his Del Tones. It has actually been dated back to ancient Greece as a Greek folk song, and it originally (like most folk songs) had lyrics, which were left out because surf guitar songs tend to exclude lyrics. It has been covered by many bands, notably Orange County surf-punkers (although they denied being part of the punk scene) Agent Orange. It was also recently brought back into the spotlight by Quentin Tarantino's smash hit film Pulp Fiction, in which it was used as the main theme. Although, after Pulp Fiction, I'm sure most everyone knows this song, if you've still never heard it, I highly recommend looking for it. It rocks.
