Strummer decided to sing the backing vocals in Spanish on the spur of the moment along with Texan country rocker Joe Ely. However he needed someone to do the translation so Eddie Garcia, the sound engineer, called his mother in Brooklyn Heights and got her to translate them over the phone. Eddie's mother is Ecuadorian, so Joe Strummer and Joe Ely ended up singing in Ecuadorian Spanish. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England and Rainyhouse - Spanish Fork , UT)”

So me and Strummer and the Puerto Rican engineer sat down and translated the lyrics into the weirdest Spanish ever. Then we sang it all. "When you listen to 'Should I Stay or Should I Go,' there's a place in the song where Mick says, 'Split.' Me and Strummer had been yelling out the Spanish background lyrics and we had snuck up behind him as he was recording. We were behind a curtain, jumped out at him in the middle of singing, and scared the shit out of him. He looks over and gives us the dirtiest look and says, 'Split!' They kept that in the final version.”
