Half of the white people who hear this probably think it's Cypress Hill. The other half are Americans happy to listen to a group that reminds them of their long-forgotten oppressed Irish minority heritage. The transition from the heyday of Fred Astaire to Everlast jumping up and down after four too many Irish Car Bombs says everything about the evolution of white dancers. This song was such a huge, destructive event that it transformed Everlast into a country singer.
