This track has no business being so good. And, it’s so fucking good. “She’s On It/Jack The Ripper” is a Record Store Day release by a band, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, who hit their creative peak in the ’90s. The song in question is a medley consisting of an old-school hip-hop joint by the Beastie Boys (“She’s On It”) and another track by the way influential Rock ‘N’ Roll guitarist, Link Wray (“Jack The Ripper”), dating back to 1961. Then again, as the man, Jon Spencer, would probably tell you himself: the best Rock ‘N’ Roll wasn’t made with any rules other than dig it, feel it and rock it the fuck out. The Blues Explosion rock this one way fucking out.
