PRO TIP: Avoid the radio instead! Then you can evaluate music on its own merits instead of holding this station up to some weird "I don't like it because I heard it elsewhere" hipster standard.

I heard the same thing.  So I looked it up on another lyric site:  http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/kongos/comewithmenow.html. On that site they are singing "Whoa".  Which sounds an awful lot like war.

Like some others I instantly thought of John Kongos and so looked them up on Wiki. I think the track is better than it's current rating, which is perhaps low due to being overplayed in the USofA (but not in the UK). The album is quite good too - some tracks show more of their father's influence than others.

I was wrong - but looked it/him up, and found out that the band are - his 4 sons .......

 

And the release was produced by him!

Acknowledging the political correctness of the comments bellow, this cut has very serious stones and a genuinely primal drive.  Gave it an 8.

According to Bill, the four sons of John Kongos are in this band.

I like the really complicated, shuffling rhythms to this, but I keep hearing the chanted verse as "War! Go (not come) with me now!"  Doesn't make a lot of sense, but then it doesn't have to.

I love it every time you play this song! I bought their album based on this song and I am thrilled. I recommend this groups music 100%. It'd be nice to hear other cuts (Hey I Don't Know, I'm Only Joking, Kids These Days) - please consider expanding the playlist. Thanks!

Love this song!  Disappointed that it's been co-opted by movies and commercials so quickly.  But doesn't take anything away from its general awesomeness.
