Find the original on Ra's Nuclear War album. Building on the experimental jazz leanings of their previous album, 2000's And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out, YLT embrace the song's irresistibly funky groove and repeated incantations, suggesting the ultimate finality of horrific manmade weapons: "If they push that button, your ass got to go /And what you gonna do without your ass?" Version 1 finds the trio on their own, while the final version ...

Version 1 finds the trio on their own, while the final version is a less-than-radical remix by left-field hip-hop producer Mike Ladd.
