Overall Meaning

At first glance, the lyrics to The Black Keys' "Do the Rump" may seem a bit simplistic and repetitive. However, upon closer inspection, the song's lyrics reveal a clear invitation to dance and let loose. The opening lines, "Hey now baby, let's do the rump / Yeah darling, let's do the rump," clearly establish that the song is about engaging in a specific type of dance. The repetition of "do the rump" throughout the song reinforces this message, while the addition of "til the broad daylight" emphasizes the idea that the dancing should continue throughout the night.


The repeated use of the phrase "all over again" also creates a sense of cyclical motion, as though the dancers are caught up in a continuous, never-ending dance. The song's simple, bluesy melody echoes this feeling of repetition and movement, enlivening the listener and encouraging them to join in the dance.


Overall, "Do the Rump" is a catchy, upbeat song that invites listeners to let go of their inhibitions and simply enjoy the moment.

This album really blew my expectations to be honest. Right back to the roots, just with a higher quality production - Not overproduced though. Listening to this album with headphones makes it seem like if you close your eyes and just get into the jams, you can almost feel yourself sitting in the room with all the tube amps and equipment around you while they are jamming. Not many bands get this right and I love when they do. Awesome stuff.

William Krause

I've been hoping they would get back into this sound, and its just as good as I'd hoped. And the fact that they re-did a song from The Big Come Up with a full band more like the original by Kimbrough just makes me need this album more.

They did not disappoint! 😁

It’s disappointing that the version from big come up is so much better. Some much rawer and grittier and just all around better.

William Krause

@wurlitzer78 I love both of them about the same, but I have more nostalgia and love for the Track on the Big come up for that reason. This one is more faithful to the original recording by Junior Kimbrough.

@wurlitzer78 That'll be the Fuzz!!

You guys come up with some of the coolest music 🤘
