    I only wonder if Howlin' Wolf/Willie Dixon didn't have their share of the reasons for the band's name, along with Aldous Huxley/William Blake. But even if they only thought of it later, they definitly took it for their signature song, it seems to be on EVERY concert, more than any original or even the big hits. Excellent cover, by the way.

    Live vesion is rally awersome, but studio version is the weakest point of "The Doors" album in my opinion.
