"Wild Thing" is a single by American rapper Tone Lōc from his 1989 album Lōc-ed After Dark. The title is a reference to the phrase "doin' the wild thing," a euphemism for sex, unlike The Troggs' hit song, "Wild Thing", (later covered by Jimi Hendrix) in which the "wild thing" was a girl.

  • "Wild Thing" is a single by American rapper Tone Lōc from his 1989 album Lōc-ed After Dark. The title is a reference to the phrase "doin' the wild thing," a euphemism for sex, unlike The Troggs' hit song, "Wild Thing", (later covered by Jimi Hendrix) in which the "wild thing" was a girl. According to producer Mario Caldato, Jr., who engineered and mixed the song, producer Matt Dike was inspired by an utterance of "wild thing" in Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It, and asked Young MC to write the lyrics.Tone Lōc's song peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1989, only behind "Straight Up" by Paula Abdul, and it spawned at least two parodies (by "Weird Al" Yankovic, called "Isle Thing", about Gilligan's Island and was Yankovic's first rap parody, and by Christian band ApologetiX, called "Child King"). It eventually sold over two million copies. It also peaked at number 21 on the UK Singles Chart. (en)
