My ignorance on display once again

Back in my last Paleontology for Dullards I commented that I thought the Reigning Sound lifted the riff from Roy Loney's "Scum City" for "I Don't Believe." Jeremy Scott informed me that "I Don't Believe" is in fact a cover of a 60s obscurity by the Memphis garage band The Guilloteens:

I kind of dig the Reigning Sound's version more but I do give the Guilloteens credit for inspiring not only Cartwright and co. but also Javier Bardem's haircut in No Country for Old Men.
