"Wang Dang Doodle" is a blues song written by Willie Dixon. On June 30, 1964, Willie Dixon brought Koko Taylor to Chess Records, where she recorded "What Kind of Man Is That?". Her next session for Chess was on December 7, 1965. It was at this session that she recorded her version of "Wang Dang Doodle". Backing Koko Taylor on vocals were Gene Barge and Donald Hawkins on saxophones, Lafayette Leake on piano, Buddy Guy and Johnny "Twist" Williams on guitar, Jack Meyers on the bass guitar, Fred Below on drums, and Willie Dixon singing with Koko.

Koko's version was released in early 1966 and peaked at #4 on Billboard magazine's R&B Singles chart and #58 on the Hot 100.
