Song History
The studio version on Remember Two Things was recorded at Flat Five Studios in Salem, VA. This song famously features a live "Scat" intro where Dave scats along to his muted guitar strumming before starting the main riff of the song.

On versions from late 1993 to 1995, Carter would also scat along with Dave in the intro.

Below are notes about the "Slow and Low" intro:

During 1994, Carter interpolated lyrics from the Run-DMC song "Slow and Low" (better known as recorded by the Beastie Boys) during the scat. Here are the lyrics Carter covers:

"I do not sing, but I make a song
You'll live your whole life, and I hope you'll live long
On the Gong Show we won't get gonged
It's Run-DMC, not Cheech and Chong"


He says it very scattishly and sometimes its hard to make out. He also says, "It's DMB", instead of "Run DMC". After this he continues the scat with Dave, often saying something like, "I'm talkin' about Dave...I'm talkin' about Dave", until the main riff hits.

It is known that Carter started doing it sometime in early 94 (verified on 1.3.94) and stopped doing it sometime in late 94 (verified on 11.14.94) until he started it again in 2014.

Studio personnel:
Greg Howard - Chapman stick/synthesizer/percussion samples
Tim Reynolds - guitar
