This song by the Jamaican reggae band Inner Circle, was originally released in 1987 but it didn’t become highly popular at least initially.
It wasn’t until the band scored a huge unlikely hit with the song “Sweat(La la Long)” that they the made the US charts with the re-release of this song in 1993.
The FOX TV Network chose the new version of this song to be the theme for the reality TV show Cops. As the show drew larger and larger audiences all over the world, the song became a cultural hallmark,representing anyone who was in trouble with the law.
