Het lied "Riot In Cell Block # 9" heeft als inspiratie gediend voor het nummer van The Beach Boys. "Riot In Cell Block # 9" is een klassiek voorbeeld van een indringend r&b-lied gecomponeerd door Jerry Leiber en Mike Stoller. De bekendste versie is die van "The Robins" uit 1954, deze kwam op nummer 1 in de Amerikaanse r&b-charts. In dit nummer zit een man in een federale gevangenis zijn straf uit voor een gewapende overval. Op 2 juli 1953 om 04:00 uur wordt hij ruw uit zijn slaap gewekt door een gevangenisopstand! Het oproer begint in het 4e cellenblok en breidt zich vandaaruit, via de algemene hal, van cel naar cel. De gevangenisbewakers, gewapend met pistolen, dreigen alle gevangenen te elektrocuteren als de opstand niet snel stopt. Een van hen, Scarface Jones, besluit wraak te nemen door zichzelf te bewapenen met dynamiet. Zevenenveertig uur later, om 03:00 uur op 4 juli 1953, komt er door de inzet van traangas een einde aan het oproer en keren de gevangenen terug naar hun cel.

Songtekst

Starting out with Berkeley Free Speech
And later on at People's Park
The winds of change fanned into flames
Student demonstrations spark
Down to Isla Vista where police felt so harassed
They called the special riot squad of the L. A. County Sheriff

Well there's a riot going on
There's a riot going on
There's a riot going on
Student demonstration time

The violence spread down South to where Jackson State brothers
Learned not to say nasty things about Southern policemen's mothers
Nothing much was said about it and really next to nothing done
The pen is mightier than the sword, but no match for a gun

Well there's a riot going on
There's a riot going on
Well there's a riot going on
'Cause it's student demonstration time

America was stunned on May 4, 1970
When rally turned to riot up at Kent State University
They said the students scared the Guard
Though the troops were battle dressed
Four martyrs earned a new degree
The Bachelor of Bullets
I know we're all fed up with useless wars and racial strife
But next time there's a riot, well, you best stay out of sight

Well there's a riot going on
There's a riot going on
Well there's a riot going on
Student demonstration time

Stay away when there's a riot going on
Student demonstration
Stay away when there's a riot going on
Student demonstration
Stay away when there's a riot going on
Student demonstration
Stay away when there's a riot going on
It's student demonstration
Stay away when there's a riot going on
Student demonstration
Stay away when there's a riot going on
Student demonstration
Stay away when there's a riot going on
It's student demonstration
Stay away when there's a riot going on
Student demonstration
