Jones claimed that he was the original writer of the song (or at least the riff). His annoyance and hate for the song grew, and Jones felt the need to show his protest. This is why he would often play the Popeye The Sailor Man tune during the ‘Satisfaction’ riff instead.

Unfortunately we have found no video footage of Jones playing the popular Popeye The Sailor Man theme song, but you might still enjoy this 1965 live version of ‘Satisfaction’!
