Louie Louie Day
There are a number of activities and events that LLAMAS and its members
participate in as part of carrying out the LLAMAS mission. These include:
Promoting the observance of International Louie Louie Day each year on April 11.
Encouraging artists to record and make available new
versions of Louie Louie.
Pushing to get Louie Louie recognized by
Records as the song that has been covered more than any other.
The good folks at Guinness currently recognize "Yesterday" by the
Beatles as having that honor, but we have documented enough versions
of Louie Louie to demonstrate that it should hold the record.
Supporting other efforts to set records or create
other noteworthy events involving Louie Louie - such as the
LouieFest / 1000 Guitars
event that has attempted to set a world record by having over 1000
guitarists simultaneously playing Louie Louie.
Encouraging greater recognition of Louie Louie, and
the artists that have contributed to the Louie Louie legacy, in the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Educating the public about the unique history of Louie
Louie, and supporting other initiatives aimed at telling the Louie
Louie story - such as the forthcoming documentary film, "The
Meaning of Louie."
Advocating for official recognition of Louie Louie,
such as a street name or even revitalizing the effort to have Louie
Louie declared the
official rock song of
Anything else that we think of.
