In 1967, a Memphis garage band called The Hombres climbed all the way to #12 on the Hot 100 with a novelty song titled “Let It Out (Let It All Hang Out)”. The song was a flat-out parody of Bob Dylan’s song “Subterranean Homesick Blues” and utilized a popular slang line of the time, let it all hang out. It was one of those songs that was extremely popular for a short burst of time, and then disappeared. Today, it’s a fun forgotten oldie.
