Album is sealed and in Near Mint condition.Wild Thing is the name of rapper Tone L?c's 1988 single from the album L?c-ed After Dark. The title is a reference to the phrase "doin' the wild thing," an euphemism for sex, unlike The Troggs' hit song, "Wild Thing", (with a later psychedelic version by Jimi Hendrix) in which the "wild thing" was a girl. Tone L?c's song peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1989, and spawned at least one parody (by "Weird Al" Yankovic, called "Isle Thing", about Gilligan's Island and was "Weird Al"s first rap parody). It eventually sold over two million copies. It also peaked at number 21 on the UK Singles Chart. The song uses an uncredited sample of Van Halen's "Jamie's Cryin'". Van Halen's management at the time asked for a flat fee (credited in some reports to be US$5,000) as payment to have the song sampled by Tone L?c. Apparently, this decision was taken without consulting the band's original members (credited as co-authors of the song), who in turn did not expect "Wild Thing" to become the major hit it became. A subsequent civil lawsuit was settled out of court, with the band receiving US$180,000 as settlement payment. Alex Van Halen has gone on record saying that he had heard the song over the radio halfway and not realizing it had been sampled until he recognized his (by now famous) tom-tom break at least a few times. Concerning the settlement, he said: "Well, at least we got something. Tone L?c and his people made millions out of it..."0-16244-1002-08
