Jamba Juice

On the way to work I walk past a Jamba Juice. I've never bought anything there, having pretty much sworn off of liquid calories (I'm a recovering Coca-Cola and Wendy's Frosty addict). Anyway, every time I walk past the place, I start singing "Gin And Juice." I wonder if they've ever considered using the Snoop Dogg song in a commercial:
Just rollin' down the street, smokin indo, sippin' on Jamba Juice
Laid back
With my mind on my money and my money on my mind
By the way, I have heard two interesting covers of "Gin And Juice." Richard Cheese and Lounge Against The Machine do a swingin' version that I could imagine the Brian Setzer Orchestra performing. Even better is the countrified version by the Gourds from the album Shinebox. Instead of gangsta, maybe you'd call it y'allsta. Great stuff.

I just want to know if you'd clarify something for me; I have in recent months downloaded a "Gin and Juice" cover, but it is labeled to be a song done by the Grateful Dead. However, my brother downloaded the same song, but that was under Richard Cheese. The song is about six and a half minutes long, and I do not hear piano within it at all [which leads to my thought of it not being Richard Cheese's.]

The Gourd's version is 6:24 long and has no piano in it. When I dowloaded it, it said it was by Richard Cheese, but it isn't.
